Our family stopped here for breakfast on our way to Ruidoso. What a pleasant surprise! It's a small local restaurant with great food. There were six of us and everything that everyone ordered was delicious! The portions were large and the wait staff was very friendly. Will definitely stop here again when in Roswell.

I noted this is a very popular restaurant; however, for us it was average. The food was good and hot. The prices were fair and on par with what you would expect from this type of meal. We ate here for breakfast, we arrived early and as we were told it did get busy by the time we left. The... More

Small little place but, don't let the outside fool you. Stopped for breakfast on the way through. Friendly staff and priced just right. Home cooked biscuits and gravy were amazing. Would stop again.

After seeing the breakfast others were being served, we wished we had ordered breakfast for lunch. I had liver and onions which were very good, but the accompanying broccoli was overcooked and the mashed potatoes were pretty thin. My husband's burger was large and tasty. It was a busy place, and there were plenty of folks waiting to be seated.... More

Very small place -- do not recommend going with large crowds as there is only one table that seats more than 4 people. Food is good with large portions. We had breakfast and everyone enjoyed their meals. Staff is friendly.

This place is the business! Came here for breakfast and we're still thinking about how nice it was. Real good hash browns, pancakes and eggs. Really good service and friendly people.

Just make sure you arrive before 2PM, that's when they close the door. Breakfast served all day. Food was delicious and you can't leave there hungry !!

Classic American casual family place with small dinning area featuring cowboy murals on walls. Cheerful waitstaff brought fresh and tasty breakfast fare. We had eggs, biscuits, french toast. The owner stopped by and shared stories of our town, Portales, where he used to ride horses and brought some seriously good homemade salsa to the table when we asked for some... More

Thank goodness we found this restaurant! Albeit the small place, but the food was amazing! Lunch time was busy but the service was prompt. Food arrived within minutes after ordering. Friendly staffs too! Love the cute restroom decorations to the bits. You'll know what I mean when you visit the restaurant.
