A dark, noisy, chaotic atmosphere. Late to take our order, late to bring our food and never brought the check. Quantity of food: lots. Quality of food: mediocre. Many good places to eat along this Hi-way 18, but this is not one of them.

Within 2miles of the budget motel. Very noisy but clean. Being from NM I would classify the food as "gringo" Mexican food. Bland and not very spicy. It is convent to the Budget Motel.

Bland food. No fresh chilies in evidence. I hope the kitchen is cleaner than the bathrooms. No atmosphere. Nothing really bad, but no reason to return.
