I first went here over 20 years ago. So I am not sure if it is the same owners or not. But the food still is good that when I am in Wenatchee, I will stop in for lunch or dinner.

The restaurant accommodated me when I asked for diablo shrimp. It was delicious. The spice was as hot as I wanted it, which I don't often find. However, the dish was still very tasty. Portions are large. The salsa was also spicy and hot. Staff was attentive and friendly . I loved it.

the staff were friendly, but slow getting back and refilling our drinks. The food was average. I liked the salsa with chips.
