I came on a Tuesday, which is dollar taco night. I tried the chicken and the beef. Beef was honestly not great, and I definitely wouldn't order again, however, the chicken soft tacos were amazing! Definitely worth a dollar, and even worth paying full price.

The food is consistently good and there are a variety of things we consider our "favorites." We keep coming back. The staff is friendly and we enjoy eating there on a regular basis. Glad they are in our little town.
