Nice Lunch Spot

The cafe has a nice selection of sandwiches for lunch. My husband had a Philly cheese sandwich and I chose another one from the menu. The servings are large with a nice serving of fries.

You can get a decent meal pretty quickly here. It is almost always crowded and a favorite with the locals. Only open until 2pm and closed some days. If you're a gastronome, you'll be disappointed but it's on the better side of dining in this gas and oil town.

We stopped here for breakfast because of the reviews. I'm giving it a three due to the fact that it is clean, the wait staff friendly, and we were in and out in 30 minutes flat. The food wasn't bad but neither was it outstanding. We both had a #1; mine with toast & his with pancakes. Toast choice was... More

This place gets REALLY crowded (for good reason) and is only open for breakfast and lunch. We went for lunch, but lots of people were still ordering breakfast. The kids burgers were huge and they seemed happy. I got the green chili melt and it has lots of cheese, plenty of fresh diced chilis and was toasted perfectly. The fries... More

Loved the food and people. Very busy place. We ate there several times during our visit. Highly recommend the enchiladas. They r amazing. Kids loved the grilled cheese and ham/cheese quesadilla.

The food is always quick and as ordered. I enjoy the good service. It is always busy and may get a little loud at times but I can deal with that, since the food is good.

every time we go to New Mexico we eat here. We always get enchiladas and they always taste good. Can be crowded but it is worth it.

The place looked a bit sketchy from the outside, but the parking lot was packed, and it was 10:30 am on a weekday. Inside, the place was much nicer, clean, and the food and service was quite good. We ended up eating there twice during our stay in Carlsbad.

My work requires me to eat an early breakfast (6 am) and I am always pleased by the meal and service at this restaurant. Good basic food (eggs, pancakes, omelette, etc.) served by friendly, efficient wait staff at a reasonable price.
