This is a local place, fun décor, but host or whatever he was was surly every time we talked to him ----- cop a better attitude, Dude!!! Waitress was pleasant enough but charged us $1.95 each for 2 waters (the Attitude Dude did delete that when pointed out to him). Husband's standard 2-egg etc meal was OK but nothing special....

We ate twice at this cozy family owened restaurant. The servings are large and good down home cooking. The green chili was delicious and spicy. Meals come with a choice of soup or salad. We were happy with everything we were served. Waitstaff and owner were very friendly and helpful.

We had a very good meal this evening. My only complaint was that Janelle would not let her staff do their job. She has excellent help but she seemed to be stepping over the top of them and taking over things that were already taken care of. She even messed up an order for a family sitting by us that... More

Very homey! The food is great, but, be aware that the portions are HUGE! If you are a light eater, split an order with a friend. There is a very good soup/salad bar here as well. Prices are very reasonable.

This was a local restaurant. The outside isn't much but the inside is nice. The food was good and had a salad bar.

I had their chicken fried chicken and it was juicy and flavorful. The salad bar was limited but it was fresh and tasty. The mashed potatoes could have been better. The rolls melted in my mouth. The service was good and they were friendly.
