“Breadsticks and Potato Cheese Soup”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Was turned on to the potato cheese soup by a State Trooper friend many years ago. I in turn got my wife hooked on the soup and breadsticks. Whenever we are in the area on a Thursday ( only day for cheese potato soup) we go there for lunch. Unfortunately we do not get there very much any more like we used to, but when we do, we are extremely happy we did.

“Best Mexican food in NWI!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

This place is the best in Northwest Indiana, hands down. The service is excellent and the food awesome. The only problem is that you sometimes have a long wait. We have tried almost everything on the menu, and all of it is awesome. The Texas nachos, enchiladas suizas, and shrimp tacos are some of our favorites. The margaritas are huge and strong, the pina colada margarita is the best. They are generous with the chips and salsa and drink refills, too. You must try this place!
