Tex/Mex fast food at it's finest! Local favorite has been a hang out spot for generations. Something different to try each visit.

This is NOT an authentic Mexican restaurant but its good fast feel good food. Daily specials, souvenir cups that can be refilled cheap. 40 years in business and is always busy. The first place people go when they come home.

The nachos papas is my favorite. I get it every time. I love the flavorings you get on the drinks. It's a great place to find in or drive through.
