I’ll just say food was ok..... not expensive at all. The website tagged on trip advisor is not the same place. I tried using the kids eat free Wednesday one and they wouldn’t take it because it was the wrong one apparently.

We had breakfast here on Saturday morning and the food was great. We visit about 3-4 times a year and always try to return- so far for breakfast only. Good food, great service and always pleasant.

We had a delicious meal here! Everything we ordered was tasty, the staff were friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was nice. The “hot plate” fajitas was just enough for four of us and wonderfully flavored. The roasted corn quesadillas were very yummy and the...More
