My mother and I stopped here to eat lunch on our way back to Texas. The food was delicious, the place was clean and staff was friendly. Good place to stop on the way through.

We stopped here while traveling through on vacation. We saw the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided this was a great choice in Santa Rosa. We enjoyed everything. We had tacos, Chile Rellanos, and Carne Adavada. Staff was friendly. We would definitely stop again.
