A little bit of a Mexican twist on some breakfast favorite but all the staples are there. Breakfast portions were not too big or small. Price was just right. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the pleasant waitstaff. Quick service. We will return for more!

This is the 4th or 5th time we've been, and we've never been disappointed. We love the fish tacos and that you can get breakfast for lunch. Friendly staff and great food
