Went to lunch with several men from church and this place is always good. I had their taco soup. Flavor was excellent. A couple of the guys always get their green chile cheeseburger and were very happy. Waitress does excellent job with large group.

Ok, so looking at this place from the outside you may think it's a little dated. And then you walk inside and discover you're absolutely correct. BUT, they have amazing burgers and steaks!!! And I don't mind the beer either ;)
