Love this hole in the wall, gem of a place. Prices are very reasonable. I love when I can make it to the Hide out. Their flour tacos, beans and chips and their homemade sauce are the best!!!

This is a great little family resturant off the "beaten trail" but well worth finding...probably the reason it's known as the "Hideout". The food is great with nice portions with quick service. The Friday afternoon lunch is a weekly stop. The owner Jack does a...More
