We’re over 35 years experienced in this type of business and we take very seriously ours responsibilities when it comes to business, no matter how small it’s a complaint or a joy from our customers, because we all depend on their repetition to our locations and we want to see them happy. This is why we do our best on serving quality food and have the most attentive servers.

Never having been to Mesquite, we found on tripadvisor.com and were very pleased. Staff very friendly and accomodating to our gluten- free family. Kids and adults really liked. Very clean, basic decor and family friendly! Small restaurant in a small strip mall. Don’t be deceived.
