“Average in every way.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We shared an evening here with friends and even though the conversation was great the restaurant was only okay. Atmosphere? Not really. Drinks? Well, they only have blah beers, no good micro-brews like every other restaurant in Central Oregon. My wife got the strawberry-lemon mojito and said it was mostly ice. And it was $7.50! Service was nice, but slow. The beef enchiladas were ground beef, not shredded. The chile rellenos weren't bad-- but the rice & beans were only so-so. Cost for the four of us, with drinks, was around $75 so at least it wasn't too expensive. Probably won't go there again.
