Large portions and great food, It doesn't matter what dish you order, they are all great. The servoce is freindly and the prices very reasonable. They have indoor and outdoor dining. You can also drink your own adult beverage.

Went there for dinner on a Sunday evening. Service was slow, and menu somewhat limited. We had chicken fajitas that were OK, nothing special, as well as a stuffed anaheim pepper, which was very good. The food was average, atmosphere ok, and service poor.

I really enjoy this park. It has some really nice, fairly strenuous hiking trails as well as a beautiful drive to lookout point. Also, there are trailheads the lead you over into the back of the Fort Davis Historic Site. Beautiful, beautiful country.

I have eaten here more than once and it is good Tex Mex. The chile rellenos are uniquely crispy and tasty. Service is good and it is a comfortable place to eat.

We were on in a rush so the dinner buffet was perfect. The green and red enchiladas were good. The beef fajitas were also good. The price was not too bad.

Food was really bad. I mean it was referred to as "mexican" but it has nothing to do with delicious Mexican cuisine, nor it is a tex-mex. So called hot salsa tastes more like a marinara sauce (needless to say it had no heat). The...More
