I had lunch there and the food was good. Portions were huge and all tasty. Service could have been better and the place could use some deep cleaning. Not a restaurant I would choose for date but ok place to have quick lunch or take out.

I had the chance to share dinner here with my sister on a weekend visit to Alpine (my first). We were there on a Friday night, and there were not many spots left when we arrived. The service was steady, but not the best I have had for sure, but not bad either. For the entrees, my sister had the... More

I ordered the beef and chicken fajitas and they were good. The service could have been better. Chips and salsa were good but should come with the meal.

Small off the path cafe with good food. The wait wasn't horrible but worth it. I had the chili rellonos and my husband had the pork tacos which came 4 on the plate along with beans and rice. My rellonos were cooked the way they do them in Mexico. Egg white coating on a sweet pepper filled with creamy goodness.... More

We were given a high recommendation for this place, as soon as we walked in we were told we could sit down but the kitchen was shut down for the next 45 minutes. I had read about this happening in other restaurant in town, serving regulars while making tourists wait, etc. Never thought it would happen to us! We left... More

We went to this restaurant for breakfast and dinner on the same day. I had huevos rancheros for breakfast and it was excellent. The beans were very good. For dinner I had nachos supreme and it was so tasty. This is a great place to relax with your family and get the local feel of the town.

Can't report on the food. We gave up after waiting 45 minutes for our order. The salsa was ok though.

We we're pleased with both our meals. I had the vegetarian enchilada with red sauce. Hubby had the Saturday dinner special. The server said they use white cheese and lard free beans to accommodate vegetarians...which made me happy. Will definitely stop in again before heading Westward ho. We seemed to be the only tourists the other dinners were local. The... More

They have great food and the service is fairly slow Bailey because the Cook staff are fairly slow. The good thing is that the food is good enough that people are willing to wait for their order.
