Sausages and hash browns were good. Biscuits were cold and heavy, gravy was lumpy. Service was slow, never got a refill of either water or iced tea. Took a long time to get our bill and had to wait in line to pay. This place...More

Taste like Grandmas kitchen!!! Light fluffy pancakes, hot brewed coffee, and delightful hospitality. I would eat here every day if I could. Country and a Mexican food masters. Even my children enjoyed their meals and left no crumb behind. ;)

Had breakfast here on my recent visit to Silver City and glad I did. Very good food and wonderful service. It is an older restaurant, but clean and interesting looking.

Obviously a local favorite and I can say we were not disappointed. Kind of a 60s type diner but with a friendly and efficient staff. The menu was pretty complete with American favorites and Southwestern fare. We were comparing the Huevos Rancheros throughout New Mexico...More

Certainly not fancy or 'different', but good standard fare. Actually really good pancakes! Wait staff was friendly and prompt. No complaints really.
