Sorry to say because the service was so warm and friendly, but the food was flavorless. Chiles Rellenos was crusted, which may seem like a nice idea, but the crust fell off immediately and what was inside was tasteless. BLT was disappointing.

Huevos Rancheros and Mexican Omelet we’re great! Coffee was a little weak, but food was good! Cinnamon roll was fresh and warm! Service was good and atmosphere is warm and cozy!

Thought it would be a good meal. Red cheese enchiladas were bland with sparse cheese. Hot sauce good, though not used to a Mexican restaurant charging for chips and salsa. The waitress okay but not very friendly. Did not give us our check, we had...More

We were at a lost on where to eat lunch on a Monday in Marfa. Most places are closed. Sara at Marfa Radio suggested this place on the outskirts of town. It's a bit of a dive but clean, nonetheless. Customer Service was wonderful. Very...More
