Kenn (Kendrick), the owner, treated us so great. Their stuffed sopapillas are fabulous. Their dessert, The Hatcha's Crisp, consists of mini-sopapillas, ice cream, chocolate, and caramel sauce. If you're in this area, or even within reasonable distance, this is so worth the stop.

This town is nearly entirely ghost. Never saw so many closed store fronts. So eating is limited. Despite the map, Hatcha's is mid-town, just west of the 434 intersection. Waitress friendly.
