The food is authentic Mexican, and we're never disappointed. Service is friendly and attentive, too. What's not to love? It's like stepping back in time in the days of Route 66 road trips. We always schedule a stop here on our travels in the southwest.

This place is your average small town diner with a little bit of everything on the menu. Food is decent, service was good, people friendly. Nothing bad to say here, nothing extra ordinary either. Decent price, would eat here again.
