This restaurant is located downtown. The restaurant smells nice. Even the bathroom. I ordered the Spinach and Portabelo Enchiladas. It did not disappoint. The service was fast and friendly. The food is reasonably priced.

Great food and outstanding service, even with a busy Parents weekend at Missouri State. Waitress was pleasant, efficient and timely. Never ran out of drinks and food was great.
