“Great service and great food”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

I've always been fond of Hillside Café. They have such a friendly staff and great food. All food is homemade and very fresh. There are also great burgers and a variety of food for anyone's taste buds. I highly recommend trying to white flower tacos or tamales on Fridays or Saturdays. Great place to eat with fried ice cream as well.

“Not Mexican food”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Not really Mexican food. Not even close. They use Velveeta. Like a lot of other reviews, the locals think this is Mexican food. It isn't even close.

“Excellent, fresh food at reasonable prices!”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

Very informal family restaurant tex-mex that is hard to beat. This is NOT one of the chain "Mexican" places with tons o' cheese food, manufactured tortillas and "free" chips from a bag and salsa from a can. Try the guacamole for an authentic sauce or with the home made chips.
