Great Breakfast!

We went here for breakfast with another couple on a Saturday morning. We arrived around 9am and there was no wait. The blue corn pancakes were outstanding! They had a number of interesting breakfast options - I could eat breakfast here all week and not order the same thing.

Had one of their signature dishes, Greek Fries, finished it off with homemade Caramel Apple Pie, so yummy. Staff is always very attentive and pleasant.

Have eaten here several times on different occasions. Love the patty melt with the grilled onions and green chilies on sourdough. The chips with three types of salsa was delicious. Service has been excellent on all visits.

Food was average, except for the sensational French fries which were crispy and actually tasted like potatoes with bits of the potato skin still attached.

Ambience appears to be diner-esque, but food is gourmet-great. Had the green vegetarian chili, and it was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Loved the food and service. Hotel staff did right by directing us here! Great enchiladas and drinks...the green chili is pretty warm, gave us a different taste than Maria's. Loved the service at the bar

Whether you eat at the southside location or downtown on the Plaza, the food is fabulous. Love their coconut pie and their breakfasts. Always eat here when I am in town.
