I'm a picky eater, but still found several options on their fairly extensive menu even for my finicky taste buds. Staff were friendly. Portions were nice sized. Free drink refills, my only complaint would be when I ordered the nachos with the white cheese, they...More

My girlfriend and I stopped in here while traveling on I-95, found it on a web surf. It is easy on/off due to the small size of the town, which is really nice and relaxing. The place doesn't look like much from the outside, but...More

My husband had a California burrito and I had the Karen special. Both dishes were excellently prepared. They came hot and delicious. The chips were warm and crispy. The salsa was mild but tasty. Easy access from the 95 but it is on the left...More
