This appears to be a local restaurant, as many Highlanders were eating here. The food was excellent. You order and they bring it to your table. Limited seating, friendly staff. Had the chicken, potato soup that was delicious.

We often take out of town visitors here for lunch on Saturdays. They are open most days from 11am to 3pm. It is a very casual restaurant where you walk up to the counter and place your order and then request toppings along the way...More

All the reviews are correct. This is a spectacular Mexican spot. Grilled fish tacos were wonderful, and my wife said her pork burrito was great. At least half the customers spoke mainly Spanish. Wish they'd had draft beer, but plenty by the bottle and can....More
