Spent one night here on the way to the Grand Canyon. Had the green chili verde burrito. It was so big that I couldn't finish it....and that's unusual! Place was clean, with cute fixtures, and service was fine. Would definitely stop here again.

Not much going on on New Years Day that year. They were open and I had some of the best handmade enchiladas ever. Staff was pleasant and helpful. I'll go back.
