Connected to the Days Inn which was the best part for us. Food was really good. Awesome omelets! Service was good. Decor was cute! Drinks were expensive. Martini was served in small glass & cost more than my entree.

Nothing special. Friendly employees. Members of our party commented about margaritas being too sweet.

Food was good and reasonably priced. We came in with a large group (12) and the service was quick. I had the fajita quesadilla and it was tasty.

I wasn't expecting much from this place attached to a hirel, but it was very good. Place was nice and clean, service was very good. The food was hot and fresh. I wish the chips were homemade. They tasted like bagged. Right off the exit from I 40.

Had breakfast and ordered huevos rancheros. Had to order bacon separately from meal. Beans were great. Bacon tasted more like side pork. Had to add salt to make it taste better.
