We stopped here for lunch on our way to Colorado. The service was fast and friendly and the food was excellent. We stopped again on our way home and again, the service and food was excellent.

We really enjoy the food and hospitality here. The have a large menu and I’ve tried just about everything, with no complaints so far! Bar needs a wider variety of whiskey/bourbon but not complaining.

The outside may cause you to question how good the food really is, but it was great! Chips and salsa were perfect, queso was delicious, and everyone enjoyed what they ordered...fajitas, burrito, quesadilla, and enchiladas verdes. Definitely worth the stop for some yummy Tex Mex!

This is a surprising little gem in a small town. The food was great as well as margaritas. They were very busy on Friday night and the owner or manager stepped in to help. Great atmosphere and I would definitely eat there again.
