Stopped in for a few drinks after a long day. The bartender greeted us with a smile and warm chips and salsa. Both were delicious and made us wish we'd stopped in for dinner! Margaritas were good. Friendly service!

Had lunch here, the buffet ($8), as I was in a hurry. It was ok, about what you'd expect from a place like this. Not outstanding, but not bad.

On our way by ... and a short walk from the Fairfield. Friendly reception, food was served very quickly and the fajitas were very good, there was too much for the 2 of us 2 eat. Offered cold beer and a limited wine selection.
