On a recent trip to Mammoth Cave, I checked this site to see what restaurants passed the test. This was the only one in Cave City to get good reviews, so we gave it a try and we were not disappointed.
Along with other reviewers, the house salsa is not that great. It is obviously made from canned tomatoes, and while they seasoned it well, it still is a little strange to eat. I tried the medium roasted salsa and honestly it reminded me more of a Chinese sauce of some sort with chopped up green onion in it.
Don't judge this only by the salsa. The food (steak fajitas) was good and lots of it. The pico de gallo is wonderful and I could have eaten that alone and been fine. The wait staff was fast and efficient, the restaurant was clean and smoking and non-smoking sections were apart enough so that we didn't smell anything.
I would definitely eat there again if I were in the area. I can't say the same for any other restaurant in Cave City.
