Excellent food and staff. A lot of locals eat here. Some of the best Mexican food we have eaten. The owners are super nice. Had room service and the food was just as good. Recommend you share. Portions are huge.

Had a business lunch here. The food was delicious and the portions generous. I couldn't eat it all. Although I wanted to because it was so good. I can't wait for my husband to try this restaurant.

We have eaten at this Motel Restaurant for several years. The staff is friendly but it seems to takes a long time to be served. The breakfast is excellent.

Had dinner and breakfast here. The service was quick. Nothing special about the food but it was good not to have to find someplace else to eat after traveling all day and be able to eat a quick breakfast before traveling again in the morning.
