This is our second visit to this restaurant. On both occasions we have very good meals at lunch. Service was very good and prompt despite it being very busy. It is only a short distance from either I-10 or I-25.

This is the type of place where I would be a regular if I lived here. The service was very friendly but not over the top. The food choices were great, I loved the green chili lasagna. The bread could be a meal by itself....More

We enjoyed a lovely meal with great service in early February. It was a fun place to catch up with friends we had not seen in several years. So glad they recommended we come here. It's one of their favorite places.
