I've eaten the Beef Steak here more times than I can remember within a year. Recently, Maria has changed the Ranchero Sauce Recipe and it has become my FAVORITE MENU ITEM! There's nothing bad on the Menu! In fact, I've eaten my way through their...More

The service was very good. It was clean and had a cantata atmosphere to it. The food was fair, not bad, but not great either. They probably could stand to change the oil in the deep fryer a little more often. Price was reasonable.

I eat here almost once a week on the weekend because they serve breakfast all day. The food is good and the owner and staff are courteous and friendly. A great family-run small business!

We stopped on a Sunday morning to get breakfast tacos. They were delicious, generous with the stuffings, homemade tortillas, and good salsa. The prices are very reasonable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We will go back again, maybe for lunch or dinner.

Stale chips, bland salsa started our meal. I had ground beef enchiladas the tortilla was thick, the beef was not seasoned. Maybe it was a bad night, based on previous reviews we thought this would be better experience.

Trip advisor reviews let me down on this one. Chips thick and cold, salsa thin and weird. My son and I had cheese enchiladas. The sauce, what little there was, had a vaguely sweet taste. Rice ok. Instead of beans we got shredded lettuce and...More
