Driving up you wouldn’t think much of the place but it is a quaint Mexican diner with great food at reasonable prices. My wife and I had a wet and dry burrito and both thoroughly enjoyed them. Would highly recommend stopping in!

We had to try the wet burrito, and it was seriously delicious. Would get it again for sure. My husband had the enchilada platter and his parents had the taco salad and fish tacos. Everything tasted great, service was fast. We will be back again.
