Hot day outside but it was cool and comfortable inside. The tacos and fajitas were tasty, the service prompt and there were all kinds of choices of good things to eat on the menu. Good portion sizes; no room for dessert. Next time I'll be sure to start with dessert.

I ordered an enchilada / taco dinner with rice and beans. Cost under 8 bucks. Wow, what a pleasant surprise! Very tasty. Restaurant is clean and the staff is very friendly. There is enough room in the area to park a big truck.

I had the hamburger steak for lunch. Came with Texas toast (of course), fries and gravy. The food was really good and the waitress was excellent. I would recommend it to anyone.

The service was good, people were friendly and the food was decent. They asked if we were in town for the football game. They told us that it was a 6 man team, that they were not very good but that the whole town shows up! We decided to go and it was obvious that it's a small town and... More
