Surprised

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.

This year we stayed at Imperial Beach, but he really wanted huevos rancheros from the village kitchen, so we had to go back. It seems like a hole in the wall, run down place, but the... More

This is a no frill, greasy spoon kinf of place, and it's just what you need sometimes. We ate here for breakfast, although they serve lunch a dinner as well.

Normally I'd be a little leery of a place that lists Mexican and American food on the window. Pick one, right? This place is so freaking good. 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
