“why eat anywhere else”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

Miriam is a wonderful host and great cook. Trout and chicken and bistec were the main course options. food is served family style with rice and beans and vegetables. $7 for adults and $4 for kids is a fantastic deal. added bonus is all the birds feeding in the fruit trees out the back window.

“Awesome and an authentic home cooked meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

The chicken was great. So was the gallo pinto, vegies, fresh berry juice and coffee. She treats you just like family and you can tell she cares.

The perfect incarnation of a "simple but good" restaurant. Miriam is a sweetheart. We could eat with her every day. It ws like home.
