I was visiting Lebanon this weekend and I had coupons for this restaurant so I decided to try it. The Queso was extremely runny and lacked flavor. The tacos were plain. The rice was mushy.

I like the place! Its charming decor makes me happy, the cuisine is pretty standard, but affordable, and more over fast! I leave there satisfied every time! did I mention the service is fast and efficient? good lunch or dinner-your choice! its a ways into town from the interstate, but worth the extra few miles!

We've been regulars here for years! The menu has a great variety of food, something for everyone. Prices are good, service is usually pretty quick and friendly. Their salsa is amazing!! They had some issues with credit cards a whe back, so we always pay with cash now.

We have a kitchen. But why bother. We could easily eat there 7 days a week. Jose is a gentleman and always has his eyes scanning the crowd to make sure everyone is happy. The food is very reasonably priced and always delicious.
