We found this place via an online blog and it held its end of the bargain. The pricing was cheap, the food was good and the location was close to the adrenaline of the mountains. The staff was great as well.

We had Casado (husband: pork chop, me: fish) for the first time. It was very yummy. My kids had the cheese burgers (hamburguesa con queso), and it was not their favorite meal. They enjoyed the fries. The price point was perfect.

Great cheap eats - half the price of better meals - crowded (always a good sign!) and very busy; yet the staff (harried as they were missing one server that night) were still friendly and attentive, and we all shared a good laugh after I...More

I'm not sure, but I had dinner there late one night, around 9:30 pm and they where still open. And they also serve breakfast. So my guess would be all day every day
