We stopped at random in Joplin for lunch and stopped here based on reviews. The Salsa was good. It was complimentary with chips. Portions were very large. The food was just okay. Nothing spectacular. I wouldn't stop here again if I was passing through.

I first ate at this restaurant in Grove then it moved or opened a second one in Joplin. The food I think is excellent. I think it is one of the two better ones in Joplin.
