I invited my granddaughter to join me for lunch at one of my favorite restaurants in Springfield Missouri from my college days in the 1960s. The food was still good and the service excellent. It brought back many good memories of college.

Melissa Lewis the manager is the best I have ever dealt with. Customer service is above reproach.. They bend over backwards for every customer. The Atmosphere is best, the seating, the décor is fantastic. I highly recommend it.

This is not authentic Mexican food, but it is good. All the chips and tortillas are made in house and the local spin on traditional foods is fun. It is tasty. Above all, it is a Springfield landmark. Mexican Villa and cashew chicken, two things...More

This is a local favorite but you better like sweet sauce on your tacos. It's on everything it seemed. The atmosphere is great and the people are super friendly.
