We were headed to the NC coast and wanted a good lunch stop. We missed an exit for Lumberton, and were we glad! We had eaten here before but it looks to have been recently decorated and updated.

Excellent wait staff and the food never fails. Never had anything that wasn't great. Fast/prompt service. Drink glasses always stay full. Authentic atmosphere. Price are really reasonable, so I always add a little more than average tip due to the service!

I've been to this San Jose many times and have received consistently good service and very good meals. The atmosphere is authentic and attractive. There is a separate bar that has more of a bar atmosphere and a restaurant that has a family feel. If you go, try a sangria!

Went here by chance, we were looking for somewhere to eat on Mother's Day and everywhere was packed, we hadn't booked. The car park was busy but we got in and they found us a table immediately. The decor was good and we had plenty of space. The drinks and snacks came almost immediately and the waiter was first rate.... More

Our group of 8 stopped by on a busy Sunday morning. Fast and friendly service. Excellent food. We had shrimp quesadillas, chipotle chicken burrito, taco salad, and queso. 7 full meals and drinks and the bill was less than $75.
