This was a fun, unique treat. I had fish tacos and my husband had Italian beef (the special). Both were very good. It is a very small place with a diner-like feel, with Mexican influence. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The menu is varied (breakfast, lunch & dinner options). Very good food at decent prices.

Comfortable diner at diner prices. Love their hamburgers. It's a nice place to have lunch by yourself. Bring your newspaper. Service is good. Restaurant is clean. It is a nice neighorhood restaurant.

The service for good. My friend and I just stopped in for a snack, so we got a basket of fries. It took a little longer that we'd thought it would, but we were in no hurry at all. The atmosphere was definitely laid back and comfortable and the waiters were friendly and laid back as well. I loved what a casual place it was. I've been there before with friends and we have always gotten great service and food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone of any age.
