We had a good experience at Clayton's Mexican Takeout window. We are very familiar with Coronado tacos and prices, since we live here. My friend had a shrimp taco and said it was very good (I can't eat shrimp). I had a delicious, very large...More

Had a late breakfast here. Sat at the counter as I was solo. Busy place but the servers kept things flowing smoothly. My meal was good, hard to do eggs and bacon wrong. I’d love to come back for a milkshake some time!

We stopped here twice while visiting. The service was great both times, as was the food. Limited menu and pricy, but overall good! Coffee was great!

I wish I would have had more time to eat here more than once, I wanted to try so many things. This is like an old time diner with the juke box set on the table (for looks) and a u shape bar seating and...More
