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.

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.
