We stopped for a quick burger after lunch rush. Burgers and fries were perfect. Fresh toppings lettuce crisp, tomato red firm, onion fragrant. Good standard burger. Toasted bun Hot. Nice touch. Lemonade cold, Beer cold dressed. Overall this is a relaxing, feel good dining place. Like it.

We stopped with 9 people and all though it was fairly empty, it too quite awhile to get seated and orders placed. After that things went well. The food was good and a lot of it. We were lucky, because the place really filled up after we started eating.

Since they were bought out the restaurant hasn't been the same. You used to get large portions. Now the portions are much smaller. I don't reccomend.

We have eaten here on a few occasions and each time the food was good, the service was good, and the prices are not cheap but they don't suck your wallet dry either. The decor is a fun rustic setting.

My wife and I dined here several years ago and knew that it was good back then and thought we would return to dine here on a trip to Mexico. We were not disappointed. We had another couple with us and three of us ordered the Brisket Sandwich while the other lady ordered the chili. The service was a bit... More

I really enjoyed the food here, it was very delicious. The service was absolutely awful though, my daughter didn't even get her meal, yes they like forgot to cook it. I rarely saw our waitress, I wouldn't go back.
