Found on Road Food, and green chili stew was calling to me. Although on the menu, they don't have it. "It's seasonal." Also no ice cream, so no root beer float. Servers were friendly... probably the best thing about this joint.

We had this whole place to ourselves and it was delicious! I split the Green Chile Mac'n Cheese Burger....oh my gosh! It was so good. And don't forget the cheese fries! A small is plenty for 4 people!

Great place for lunch. Not a place to have a private conversation, but the food is amazing and the menu has something for everyone. Definitely order fries and get the homemade ranch to go with them.
