If you have lots of time on your hands then this is the stop for you. Service is very slow. Usually clean though. Limited hours and days it is open. Foods okay.

Great place to go for breakfast lunch or dinner. Share a table. Get to know someone new. My favorite is the green chile cheeseburger for Friday night dinner!
