I found a bartender which was willing to google Coffee Nudge. He did a good job. Had a taco salad,WOW, as much shredded beef as there was lettuce,The portions are very generous and good.

Newly renovated and top to bottom spic and span, this local favorite for "just what I wanted" tex-mex is now better than ever. We love the cold beer and generous pours. I prefer the arroz con pollo my husband, the killer fajitas. You guys decide.

Pretty good 'mexican' food - the owners/managers are from Mexico and the food is maybe authentic...not so sure.

The night we ate here, we noticed that there were no Mexicans serving in this Mexican restaurant. No real problem with that - it just seemed a little strange. A bit like going to a Chinese restaurant where there are no Chinese folks... The food certainly was generally good, but we felt that it didn't quite measure up to most... More

It has a family atmosphere with great service and good food. Love the super burrito and reasonably priced as well.

The food was very good and the staff was pleasant! Salsa has cilantro in it so if you are one of those they say have the genetic defect and cilantro taste like soap leave the salsa alone, otherwise great food.

A good selection of Mexican food on the menu. The food came out pretty quickly after we ordered. And it was tastey. Chips and salsa were good and free. Good choices of beer or other drinks for dinner.

This restaurant was recommended, and it does appear to be popular in town. When we were there, it seemed to be under renovation, with spackling and painting underway. Service was good, but the food was pretty average. Beans came out cold, but waitress was nice enough to reheat them for us. Carne tacos were good.

Always great service and great food! We're regulars and will continue to come in at least once a month to feed our addiction!
