I use a walker to get around so the restaurant isn't really accessible but if there is a will there usually is a way. Back... More

The food is always very good, it was very busy on account of the Garth Brooks concert. The young waitresses have horrible people skills,the older lady's and young man are doing everything while the girls just walk around and make faces other than that everything was awesome!

If youre craving some authentic Mexican food one of the best restaurants in town. Green or red you cant go wrong. My favorite thing besides there chile is their Fried Ice Cream, as strange as it sounds its worth a try!

For a change the Friday lunch bunch decided to meet here. This was the first time for several of us. The restaurant was quite and not packed at the time we were there but still the service and food was first rate. All orders were delivered quick and orderly without mistakes. This is good as no two orders were the... More

The warm Green Chile Salsa and chips were the best part of the meal. The food was served hot and was edible but not memorable. The beans had little flavor and the rice was dry and tasteless. The Chile Rellenos had very little sauce (neither green nor red) on top although the batter was light and eggy. The fries were... More

Our usual haunt for Mexican food is just down the street. Having driven by this restaurant numerous times we decided to give it a go. It is a large, very clean restaurant with a half dozen or so booths in the main room with the remainder being tables (mostly for four) with cushioned chairs. They have a luncheon menu which... More
