Casual place. Friendly staff. Had the bacon cheeseburger basket that came with fries & cottage cheese. The burger was cooked properly. The fries were thick, light on the inside and lightly crisp on the outside.

We stopped here for a quick lunch while passing through to Dubuque. The restaurant is fairly plain and not fancy at all. They had a normal American-Food menu (burgers, fried appetizers, hot sandwiches) and then they had, what they called, their version of homemade Mexican food. My husband and I both ordered an enchilada off of the Mexican menu. It... More

Not sure why they call themselves a Mexican restaurant. I had nachos and husband had an enchilada. I've had much better nachos at a little league game. My husband enchilada was deep fried and had no enchilada sauce. There were also a ton of flies and they only take cash or check, no cards.

This place was completely remodeled a year or two ago and is always nice a clean with a friendly staff. The taco or enchilada is always a good option, but don't order too much because the portions are huge!

First time we've been there since the remodel. Place looked clean. We couldn't figure out why it is just so noisy though. (Compared to other places of equal size,etc.) It was incredibly noisy. Our food was good, at a good price. Downside is, it took forever to arrive. We waited a long time, as did other guests. The service was... More

This is the best food that you could ever ask for. Niece of the old owner i would say she did a good job by having it up in running. People might not like it, then thats them, if they want fast service then go to Mc Donald's, if you want the best food you have to be patient, they... More
