The food was good and the staff was friendly. We would definitely come back if we were in the area. It was a short 10 minute from Reno

Our first reaction is that the lady behind the counter to take the order was making us feel rushed like another poster said. I don't know why as there was nothing else... More

We stopped in on a weekday for lunch. We were seated immediately and the server came right over to take our drink orders. We both ordered the enchiladas lunch meals.
