“Great food & great service!”
Reviewed October 30, 2008

Maybe the managers or owners have changed since the last reviewer was at this restaurant, because our experience was completely different.
We were waited on quickly & the wait staff checked often to see if we needed anything else.
We were there for breakfast. The food was hot, the portions were generous & most of all, it was delicious!
I would say that the menu was more Mexican or New Mexican than American.

“Beutiful place, very bad breakfast experience”
Reviewed November 19, 2007

We tried the dining room because we wanted a good breakfast. Bad decision. The food was cool, the dining room was cold and the service was the coldest. Our coffee was never refilled as the wait-person was too busy eating her own breakfast at the counter. No wonder we were the only poeple there. Maybe they treat their overnight guests better. Hope so.
