I've been coming to this place forever. Can't keep me away. Since they opened up the other section the place is busier then ever. Enjoy every minute I've been here. Anything you order off the menu is incredibly delicious.

Best eatery in La. Mesa. Great menu, especially cheese burgers and fries. Five burgers get one free with their card, awesome deal. Also friendly wait staff.
