Myself and three daughters ages 13, 9, and 8 ate here for dinner while on a getaway. The girls shared large nachos, and it was plenty. The south of the border was good too. Reasonable prices, small inside, might have to wait a little for...More

We stopped for lunch. I had the fajitas and my husband had the chimichanga. The portions were large and the food was edible. We were disappointed with the quality. The service was quick and friendly.
