This restaurant has been around for a long time. Maybe it has worn out its used by date. Just felt stale & the food was ordinary. Seems to have a large local following but maybe that's because "happy hour" is the busiest time and seems great value. So my suggestion is go during their happy hour otherwise you might be... More

I recall when this restaurant initially opened. The family originally began with Dolly-O Donuts. Long since closed. I have been a patron of this family owned restaurant since its inception. My favorite plate is a cheese enchilada with fluffy prepared Mexican rice. A Margarita on the rocks, hold the salt, can be a welcome accompanient. There is a variety of... More

It's cheap and close to my house so I end up going here more than I want to admit. Everything is served with an oily sea of beans & rice. It all tastes the same. And it's all the same color. But it's ok for what it is.
