This is a cute bar and grill. We stopped in for a beer. We did not eat but the food look good. You can sign a dollar bill and they will put it on the wall or ceiling.

Had the hamburger and fries. This is like a country cafe -- decor is nothing to write home about, but the waitress was friendly and took care of us. I'd like to explore other restaurants in the area next time we visit.

I pulled off the beaten path on my road trip through New Mexico on the recommendation of my Moon Travel Guide of New Mexico which stated "satisfies every social need..." That was NOT my experience. Usually when I check out the Trip Advisor "terrible" comments,...More

Stay away from this place; it lacks food integrity, our table was dirty and women's restroom was filthy. We went there for dinner. I ordered a Rueben Sandwich which was slathered with spicy chiles which I had to remove. Upon doing so, I found that...More
