We visited this restaurant on a Saturday afternoon. It was not crowded (one other table had people). The server brought us chips and salsa and also a bean/cheese dip, which was very good and a nice touch.

The atmosphere is a bit different than you might expect, and for a Oklahoman the menu was varied - in a good way. There was value in the prices and portions and the location was great in relationship to our lodgings. They have both a bar and outdoor seating.

We came at lunchtime and it was only average in comparison to the first visit. The server was not as attentive as our first time. The cheese and bean dip was okay.

The food and service was OK but not worth going back to. The restaurant seem to be more geared to locals.

I love chili rellano and they have good ones here. I come for lunch and they still give you a large chili plus adequate sides of beans , rice and a salad with the combination plate. Worth your money and quick and fast, fresh. hot and good.

Many good meal choices. We are regulars. Santa Fe chicken salad, tacos with grilled beef or pork and enchiladas are fav's. Verde sauce is tart. Service is efficient and friendly. Can be busy at noon and weekendsn
