The breakfast as a lot of food and delicious! The restaurant seemed to be a popular place for the locals, make sure you take time to visit with them and the proprietors. A very interesting. (Doing get alarmed that the owner/server is "carrying".) We ate here before we took the train ride. One of the very unique visits while on... More

The burrito was HUGE! I could not finish it. It was delicious too! This small restaurant seemed to be a popular place for the locals and I could taste why. My family and I all ordered different meals and all were very good. Definitely coming back to this restaurant.

Walked in and noticed a cross on the wall, an American flag and the owner taking an order while packing a pistol, so I immediately knew this was my kind of place! Food was hot, service was great and the atmosphere was excellent. Small, but historical. Friendly hard working decent folks who really care about people. Very pleased overall and... More

Ate breakfast here on our last day of this years fall colors trip. They have a great selection of breakfast items. If you order the Tall stack of pancakes you better be hungry because the stack challenges Mt Everest. ;-)

I had read some good reviews, and in fairness, I did not try the burritos, but had an "American" breakfast, bacon, eggs and toast. It was mediocre, the jelly was dried up. I asked for replacement and was given more dried up jelly. My husband had biscuits and gravy. He said they were good enough.

Have only eaten breakfast here, but other meals have to be great as well. Only place we ever go for breakfast. Open at 6 am and friendly staff and locals. She places a small American flag on top of every plate served. Love it, great unique touch. God bless Fina.

I was killing time, waiting for my husband to arrive on the Cumbres & Toltec railroad. I decided to have lunch at Fina's, which I had passed by twice and saw lots of cars each time. I was seated right away and brought a generous helping of homemade salsa and chips. I ordered cheese enchiladas, which were delicious, and topped... More
