The restaurant is pleasant and their burgers and mexican food are pretty good. Their green chili is wonderful. They used to brew their own beer but no longer do so. They do have a couple of beers on tap.

we tried to check out this place, but never got served. After several minutes, we never even got a menu. We left, but I'm not sure anyone noticed!

This is a locals hangout. We were the only customers that the waitress did not know. Service was quick and friendly and the hamburger was juicy. They have a wider menu and brew their own beer.
