Stopped here because of #1 rating on TA. Tamales were very good. Beef enchilada was a tortilla with plain ground beef inside and a few sprinkles of cheddar cheese on top...nothing else. Burgers just so-so. Items are way too expensive for what you get. Didn't...More

Food was really good. Service was really good. The entire vibe was a diner from the 70s. It isn't something they are trying to do though, it is all real.

Just passing through and looked for a place for lunch. This place was top of list on my phone so tried it. Service was great, restaraunt was clean and food was excellent. You could tell they used locally grown produce. Definitely will stop in again.

A great mixed style food restaurant. Service was very good, different variety on menu with very reasonable prices. No alcohol served.

If you think you're getting spicy food, you're not, which I really like. The Blue Madonna was very good, as was the cherry pie.

Local restaurant that is recommended by folks, but when the number of options is limited, sometimes ranked restaurants are not as good as they would be if elsewhere. The food is made fresh and wait staff friendly.

We had lunch recently and the food was tasty fresh and well prepared, The service was disinterested and while we waited and waited for our bill, ultimately we had to self check out and let the cashier know what we ate.
