I regret that your dining experience was less than admirable and regret even more that your comments are suspiciously incorrect. We DO NOT charge for water (never have, never will) nor do we charge for ice tea refills. We do charge for fountain drink refills....More

This looks like a walkup fast taco stand but it is a sit down diner with slow service, at least on the day we were there. I had excellent red chili bowl my wife a chili relleno which was average.

Your comments are well noted and appreciated. I regret that your experience was less than favorable. We're beyond the holiday season slowness and now better staffed. We are reviewing your relleno concern as it is one of our signature dishes. Again thanks for input.

As locals, we are of course very picky. This is our favorite brunch place now! The food takes a little longer to get but that's because they make it fresh. It is so worth the wait!
