We dined here two nights as it was across the street from our inn. Good food, reasonable choices and a good choice of Mexican beers. Fiesta plate had variety and good flavor. Tex-Mex tends to be heavy on the carbs, this was no exception. We found the restaurant good enough for a repeat visit. PS - Don't be put off... More

The fresh shrimp was good. Most of the people eating there were very old, which may explain the lack of flavor, spice, and salt in the food. They also had American food. I didn't even see a sign on the building. They also serve breakfast.

We've been twice for dinner and once for breakfast. Very good each time. Good service. For breakfast I had Migas a la Mexicano with corn tortillas. Excellent. The corn tortillas were nice and soft and very flavorful. My wife had a more traditional American breakfast of eggs, sausage, pancakes. She liked it. Large portions.

Ate there with two others and received good service and good food. I generally eat there when I come in with others after being out in the field for birding/photography.
