Went to lunch with several men from church and this place is always good. I had their taco soup. Flavor was excellent. A couple of the guys always get their green chile cheeseburger and were very happy. Waitress does excellent job with large group.

Our group goes here 3-4 times and year. Small menu but they have great sandwiches and burgers. Wait staff is very good and friendly. She did a very good job of taking care of our party of 10.

Ok, so looking at this place from the outside you may think it's a little dated. And then you walk inside and discover you're absolutely correct. BUT, they have amazing burgers and steaks!!! And I don't mind the beer either ;)

Our church mens group dine here about every third month because their food is always very good. We always go at 1:00 to whatever restaurant we choose to avoid the heavy lunch crowd and the service has always been excellent.
