We had family in from out-of-town and decided to go out for dinner on a Saturday night. There were 4 adults and 3 little ones in our party.

Stopped in because they have good food at reasonable prices. Staff is courteous. They are busy always so sometimes you have a short wait. But it has always been good. Muy bien. :)

You can't beat this place in the Wake County area. The food is great the service is better. The restaurant is always clean and everyone greet you with a smile. I could eat here every night. The portions you get a very generous and you will not lay with an empty stomach.
