“a good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We have eaten here several times and enjoyed many breakfasts and lunches. When they are busy, service can be slow, but always pleasant. The daily specials are a bargain. Tea is freshbrewed. They have a good mole sauce, which is not often the case in PI.

“Enchiladas sauce was funny looking.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We decided to eat here after asking a lady at Travelodge what she recommended. First waitress took a long time to take our order. I had the 3 cheese enchilada plate. When I took my first bite from the enchiladas it tasted extremely salty. Not only that but the chili style sauce on top of the enchiladas had a funny texture to it. It had small pieces of gelatin like mixed in the sauce. It was not meat, it was clear looking. I told the waitress and the only thing she did was to mark off the plate from the list. She did not apologize or offered anything else nor had the owner come out.

“It's A Little More Expensive Than Neighboring Restaurants”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The food is always good, but the prices are a little more than I want to pay. I can get a similar at two other restaurants for less than what I spent here.
