The food is authentic Mexican, and we're never disappointed. Service is friendly and attentive, too. What's not to love? It's like stepping back in time in the days of Route 66 road trips. We always schedule a stop here on our travels in the southwest.

This place is your average small town diner with a little bit of everything on the menu. Food is decent, service was good, people friendly. Nothing bad to say here, nothing extra ordinary either. Decent price, would eat here again.

Decor was very fun. The green chili gravy makes everything great. If you don't get the chicken fried steak ranchero then ask for the gravy on the side. They were out of ice cream -- and we really wanted a root beer float.

The outside was clean and very inviting, but the inside was worn and needed cleaning. The waitress was friendly but was not attentive. Our food was warm and was nothing special.

Good food at reasonable prices. Tends toward New Mexican food. Convenient to I 40. They make a very good martini which was totally unexpected.
