Maybe it's just me, but a restaurant attached to a gas station just doesn't seem right. But, we've heard good feedback about the food and figured we would give it a try. Being new to the area, we're looking for decent food without having to...More

We ordered take-out and were told it would take 15-20 minutes. We waited for over an hour past that to get cold, soggy food. I ordered and paid for a chicken enchilada with mole sauce, but got a plain enchilada. The cook refused to give...More

The food here is pretty decent. Suggestion...if a certain waitress asks you if you like orange while ordering a margarita...just say no. It's her special and it's gonna cost you. Most likely she doesn't still work there but just FYI. other than that...we really enjoy...More

And have a fine , authentic Mexican meal at this open-all-day atmospheric "joint". Loved the quac, the"top shelf" Margs and the rice and beans that accompanied the mains. The best is how unexpected this fun spot arises off the side of the highway and a...More
