Friendly staff...a cool refuge from the heat! The menu is generous with a good variety of choices, and it is very close to Borrego Valley Inn...definitely our favorite choice!

Didn't look like much from the outside so we didn't know what to expect in the small desert town. We were pleasantly surprised as the service was good and the food was excellent. All the sauces and salsas etc. were made from scratch on premises. Decent size portions and the Rancho beans for some of the best I've ever had.

At first I thought that this would be a bad experience because the waitress who seated us seemed very unfriendly. Fortunately we got the other waitress who was young and very nice. The food was very good. The cheese enchiladas were especially yummy. It was a nice lunch.
