Had a bacon wrapped steak with a delicious Spanish sauce on top! I went straight home and took some extra statins! Good food, good service, popular with locals. Out of the way, about 5 miles out of town, but definitely worth it!

We have passed this place many times and decided to stop in. The murals on the outside have always been a draw. We were met at the door and welcomed in. The service was attentive, the food for me, was excellent ! The decor especially the stained glass windows unparalleled and a joy to look at. It is definitely worth... More

They changed the recipes. It is horrible. Food didn't taste good at all. Service was horrific. Not worth a drive. I will not come back to the place. Would not recommend to anybody. They must have changed the chief.

I went here with my adult daughter May, 2015. I ordered a side salad and a chile rellano. The salad was ok. Lettuce was pretty pale, but that's not my complaint. I have had the chili rellano at least twice before here. I had no complaints. This time it tasted different. It had almost a chemical taste to it. I... More

The meal was good, service was good, and the price is right! Really enjoyed our early dinner today. There weren't very many other customers while we were there so I don't know how they would handle a rush, but our experience was spot on. Our waiter was quick to take our order and our dinners were hot and tasty shortly... More

I just got a house in this area and I'm enjoying trying out the local flavor. I've eaten at this restaurant before and loved the food and it's charming ambiance. This last time however, the meat had a bit of a chemical taste, and I know now that's when I should have stopped eating. I am sorry to say that... More
