Ate here three times now. Service excellent. Food flavor fantastic. Avoid the fajita beef, it has been consistently too tough to chew.

Everytime I visit Texas I stopped at this place 2 to 4 times a week. Breakfast lunches and dinners are all good. At reasonable prices.

This place is a local favorite. We have eaten there in the past, but were turned off when we saw bugs. We decided to give it another try. The place is still not very clean, but the food is still good. Personally, I just can't...More
