We stopped in about a half hour before closing time. They were very nice about our late visit. The food was great and we were not rushed at all.

We were disappointed in the food being that they boast right on the menu that their chilis come straight from Hatch Valley, which we know are the best. We ordered a beer and a margarita (made with wine, not tequila) and a dinner salad which was not too cold but with a nice variety of veggies and crotons. The chicken... More

We ate here on long trip. We ate from Senior Menu. Service was great but food was just okay. Resturant could have been a little cleaner but not awful.

I tried the "Taco Plate" which consisted of three tacos, either ground beef or shredded chicken or beef for "fifty cent each" more. I wanted... More

Average small town restaurant that was next to our motel. I had the special of the day which was a delicious hot turkey dinner complete with dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy plus cranberry sauce. My wifes Mexican dinner was only average at best. The service was friendly and fast, although the place was packed around 7pm on a Saturday night.

The food was very good, the portions were large and the price was reasonable. oh yea, the service was awesome. Even 10 minutes before closing they sat us and still had the full menu available. Close to the highway and very easy to get in and out of the parking lot.

Passing through Santa Rosa we noticed this restaurant and it caught our eye because it was not there the last time we were in Santa Rosa and it being lunch time we decided to dine there. Their menu was excellent with a variety of different types of food, the prices were very good and the service was very good. The... More
