Out in the desert and need a quick meal? This place is great. Friendly staff, big portions and the food is really good and arrive promptly. There was so much choice on the menu it was difficult to choose what to eat!

Friendly staff, huge servings and good tasty food. We had milk shakes and burgers. The food was fresh and served hot. Great tasting fries.

Very crowded and deservedly so. Great breakfast and lunch menus. We had excellent omelette...but ask for cheddar cheese rather than the bland white cheese they use. Good take out business.
