We patronize this restaurant quote often and have been satisfied with their food and service up until yesterday. The owners granddaughter waited on us. Right from the get go we could see an attitude. We are polite to the wait staff and she would not acknowledge a simple thank you. We are both seniors and always receive a senior discount... More

Love their Mexican and American food for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Service is normally great. Chili rellanos are wonderful.

The restaurant is clean. Their servers are very friendly and tend to you quickly. HQ's food is almost homestyle cooking. American and Mexican cuisine. Their prices are very affordable. It is a nice home town cafe.

I was raised here in Maricopa and the food here is amazing depending on the cooks. Mark Campos is the best cook and has the greatest personality!!!

Food is excellent, service is a bit slow but it's a very popular place in town. They only serve breakfast and lunch, and we have only had breakfast there.

The food is very good and the service matches. If something isn't right they will make it right one way or another. The burgers are very good. The enchiladas are very tasty using a favorable spiced beef. The menu has American and Mexican food. My only complaint was the draft Bud I had that was not very cold, no head... More

Well I had breakfast there many times over the years. Nothing fancy, very basic and edible. Average tasting, has all the favorites, biscuits and gravy, chorizo, even eggs benedict. Very busy, always busy. Get ready to step back in time, I don't think it's been remodeled since the 70's. I did have a burger one night for dinner at the... More

This is probably the oldest restaurant in Maricopa, I remember it being there in the early 80's. Decent food and bargain prices. The Mexican offerings are very 'tame' tending to all taste the same with no spice or heat. The breakfasts are the best deal there. DDG
