This is not Dairy Queen.

I ate supper here, and ordered a 3 beef enchilada dinner with an egg on top. It came with a salad and I believe sides of beans and rice. With Ice Tea, the meal came to about $11. A little on the high side, but the food was prepared in their kitchen, and it tasted very good. It was a... read more

I ordered an enchilada / taco dinner with rice and beans. Cost under 8 bucks. Wow, what a pleasant surprise! Very tasty. Restaurant is clean and the staff is very friendly. There is enough room in the area to park a big truck.

I had the hamburger steak for lunch. Came with Texas toast (of course), fries and gravy. The food was really good and the waitress was excellent. I would recommend it to anyone.

The service was good, people were friendly and the food was decent. They asked if we were in town for the football game. They told us that it was a 6 man team, that they were not very good but that the whole town shows up! We decided to go and it was obvious that it's a small town and... More

Good safe food and the inside is clean. They serve Mexican food, burgers, sandwiches and of course Ice Cream. Ed the owner is a great guy and fun to chat with.

The place was packed for lunch, mostly with locals, but with some world-travelers and state troopers mixed in. It could have made a scene in a movie featuring an American small, desert cafe. Believe it or not, I had my first chicken-fried steak here. Although maybe not on my heart-healthy diet, it was very good. The portion was large enough... More

The place isn't fancy, but the quality of their Mexican food is second to none. I have eaten here several times in recent years and have always had good food and service.

The food was ok so was the prices. The staff was friendly. This cafe must be ok as the room at the time had state troops and county sheriff's for dinner.
