This restaurant offers classic Tex Mex for a great price. I was especially impressed with their all day breakfast menu.

Solid stop on our road trip. Cheese enchilada dinner for three of us and a Chicken Fried Steak for the outcast. Chips and salsa were good, and service was fine. Big glasses of T and the lunch specials at 4.99 put it on the fast food level cheap. Dinner for four for less than $30. I'll take it.

Restaurant has been filthy the 3 times I went. If the front of the house is that bad, imagine how the kitchen is. I won't go back.

I lived in Texas for almost fifty years before moving back to Alabama about two years ago. I have always enjoyed Mexican style breakfast with eggs, meat, refried beans, and tortillas, but you simply cannot finds that in many places outside of Texas. I ate here for dinner the first night I was in town and noticed on the menu... More

The food here is typical Tex-Mex. Nothing outstanding; but just what one expects. Their service is very good.
