I was surprised at the high rating this place received. One roast beef plate was over cooked, the turkey dinner was over cooked, my fries were greasy. There was a lot of food, but mediocre to say the best.

Have had many of the menu items, but by far the Huevos Rancheros is the best. We are from San Diego and every time we visit we hit the Villiage Kitchen. This last... More
