“There's a reason there's not a wait here”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

There's a reason there's so few cars in the parking lot compared to other Door County restaurants. We wondered that when we pulled it, and we also observed it for the rest of the weekend. We both had different kinds of fajitas which were bland - very generic and edible but not very enjoyable. Not served piping hot and sizzling like they are at most places - made us wonder if they were pre-cooked and just warmed up. The shrimp fajitas ($13) were disappointing - very small ones (popcorn shrimp size) with little flavor. Having choice of flour or corn tortillas was a nice touch. Be prepared to pay $4.95 for a small basket of chips with salsa - don't assume they will come with your meal. Service was fine. No reason to go back there when there's so many better restaurants in Door County.

“Nice Menu Choices - Even Pizza!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We stayed at a hotel across the road and were just wanting to eat pizza for dinner. Luckily, they had it on their menu. We ordered a small special with sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onion, and green peppers, thin crust. It was good, but I haven't met a pizza I don't like. I have my favorites and this one wasn't one, but it was good. I ordered a house salad which was fresh and my hubby ordered a cup of chicken tortilla soup which he said was good. It was around 7:00 when we arrived, several people were eating outside, but we opted for inside seating. This would be a good place to bring kids as it's not over priced and they had a few items on the children's menu in case they didn't want Mexican or pizza and you do.

“Amazing new fish creek restaurant”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This restaurant is a sister to Summer Kitchen in Ephraim. It is family run by a wonderfully talented family. We have had the father and several of his daughters as our servers and they are some of the best waitresses we have had, and they are only teenagers! The Mexican food is always FRESH and delicious. They make their own flour tortillas with a mix of spices which is unique and yummy! The salsa is spicy and so fresh tasting. We tried the pizza (taco and meat lovers) which was amazing! I loved the light crispy crust. A must try restaurant if you love Mexican food.
