The burritos were good as were the chips, however, after we placed our order we didn't see our server for a while. When your glass is empty and the chips are gone you need more attentive service especially when the restaurant is virtually empty. The restaurant was rather dark and gloomy to boot.

They have changed the food. Go back to the original Tumbleweed. We have been eating with Tumbleweed for years. But now that they have changed the food, it is not our first choise anymore.
