We were looking for a place for breakfast. Stopped here to check it out. Both of our breakfasts were good. The owner was a very nice lady. Would recommend to others.

When the locals, me, eat here, it has to be good. The homemade tortillas made into burritos and smothered in chili and cheese is the best.

This place is amazing. The staff is lovely and the prices are more than reasonable. The food is to die for. Especially the homemade tortillas! Everything is delicious, you cannot go wrong with this place.

My wife is not a fan of Mexican food and loved her breakfast chalupa. I had a combo plate and it was terrific. Non of it was spicy. The sauce was there to season as desired. Perfect. We're going back again.
