Dinner was traditional and tasty TexMex. Staff is friendly. Chips are fresh. Salsa is good, but they don't have really spicy salsa.

Not great but there isn't much for breakfast options in this sleepy town and it appear you can do worse. Good service and the omelette was Ok, the coffee drinkable.

This restaurant was kind enough to serve us e breakfast even though it was the lunch hour. Juevos Rancheros and the Chorizo & Eggs omelette were delicious. Definitely worth the stop on the long I-10 stretch east of El Paso.

Passing through, stopped for a late lunch. It was a random choice, we knew nothing of the area. Doesn't look much from the outside, but the service was good and so was the food. It is home-style Mexican food, you won't get any fancy frills...More
