Stopped in for breakfast and loved the old diner feel. Excellent personal service and warning of large portions. My husband had the breakfast burrito and definitely the half portion is enough tasty yet spicy too. He prepared my eggs lightly done perfectly. Well worth a...More

If you want a really good breakfast this is the place to go. They really got it right when it comes to green chili. Unless you're in New Mexico this is not usually the case. Very friendly and attractive waitstaff. Large portions of delicious food.

Stopped in for lunch. Decor and staff cater to hipsters. Food was average. Bring cash, they do have an atm machine if you only have plastic.

I love eating local and this is a fun place for breakfast. Huge portions but they offer 1/2 and 1/4 size plates, which are more realistic amount for most people. This is comfort food.

The food here is pretty extraordinary, in taste and size. I got a quarter burrito and I stil had enough to take home. Its a fusion place of american breakfast with mexican accents (chili verde, tortillas chorizo etc)

I agree with ordering it from their website. Our waitress told us locally you can find it at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, but our California stores don't carry them. We also loved the green chili sauce!

I noticed there is a breakfast menu as well as a lunch menu but is there a time of day when you can't order off either one?
