Food & service is good. They are enlarging the restaurant, which makes it a lot better. It is not as crowded

Relaxed atmosphere and good staff but the Mexican food could having been better. Standard sauca with below par chips. Food was served hot but the rice had no taste and the enchiladas could have been better.

The food was very good and portions are good. They have an appetizer called Malano's Nacho's-outstanding! It is worth going there just for this dish. Their ranchero Beans in a bowl are some of the best. We enjoy the place and go often.

I am typically by myself when I eat here. In the past, I thought it was rude that they were in full construction swing, hammers and all during peak lunch hours. It was LOUD because it has a high bay non insulated ceiling. Today I was with a business associate and we were trying to discuss a project. At 1:30,... More

An older place with the exterior not giving any indication of the great food, service and price on the inside. Meals were hot and delivered quickly and when we had an issue with something it was dealt with immediately. Portions are large so go hungry and its easy to find - recommended for families as there is plenty of room

The food at this place is fresh and very good. I did get celery in my shrimp enchiladas and that was weird. Other than that, the food is always A+

I had the chicken caesar salad on my first visit & the steak quesadilla on my second visit & both were great! The wait staff was good & I couldn't have been happier with the small town restaurant.

There was a larger group of us, 8 total, including two 3 year olds and an infant. They chose to sit us at a 6 chair table, in the center of the entire room! (There was an 8 chair table in the corner) The food was good and service wasn't decent. It's nothing fancy but I would recommend it!

Thank Wwife
