“Pretty Dang Good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Like to try local joints and this one is VERY local. Interior hasn't been upgraded in decades - which I thought was quaint. The food and service were nothing short of exceptional. We'll be back.

“Just OK.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Much better choices in town. Service not personal. Mediocre lukewarm food. Very coffee shop like. Sorry I cannot recommend.

“Only had coffee, wish we had longer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

One of those unique places. Unpretentious but clearly offering home cooked food with pride. The coffee was freshly brewed, iced tea home made and the food coming past us looked amazing. Would definitely have eaten there if not just passing through.

“Good meal in a little town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

This is a nice little Mexican restaurant in the little town of Lone Pine; Ca. The food was good and the service friendly. This is a family owned restaurant and a friendly happy place. My favorite was the meatball soup….so good! And yes, they do serve alcohol so my husband could have a beer with his tamales and their salsa is excellent too! Lone Pine has a population of only 2,000 so there are not a lot of restaurants to choose from here. If you are looking for good food, good service, fair prices in a family run atmosphere this is a good choice.

“Good home cooked Mexican restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

If you're in the mood for a honest Mexican meal, this is the place for you while in Lone Pine, California. The place is not fancy but the food is awesome. Good use of fresh ingredients and everything was tasty. Highly recommended.
