“Best Mexican Meal on our travels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

We had to stop for a restroom break. While waiting I was checking out the meals being served. When I saw this one ladies Mexican, I just had to have some, as we got burned in Las Vegas and hadn't had the opprotunity to have some since. Convinced my wife to stay as she wasn't that hungry but it was certainly delicious! I was so glad that I saw that lady's plate that I paid her lunch. Its funny how you come across great restaurants by accident and this was one of them and thats why I'm also taking the time to write this review. Can't go wrong here. The staff was also very friendly.

“Very Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

We ate here for lunch after visiting Lincoln and then the Smokey Bear Monument. It was very cute, had wonderful staff and very yummy food! This is worth the stop if you are in town and hungry!

Waitress was very helpful in our ordering. Quick service too. Our breakfast was very good and the green chile was to die for.

“Quaint little stop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

I'm sure all of the locals just think it's good food. It is a traditionally little diner, booths, tables, and a counter. A diverse menu from burgers, sandwiches, fish, and New Mexican. The little cafe was busy but not over crowded and the staff kept up with the lunch rush. We enjoyed watching the staff interact and have fun with the guests and each other. It was nice to see people having fun at work.
Loved all of the "Smokey the Bear" memorabilia especially the posters.
