Spicy waffles were delicious and very unique. We also had the huevos rancheros which were also great. Sat outside and it was great!

A busy place for breakfast with a lot of local customers but I didn't think the food or service was anything special. I had the pancakes and and they were ok, but I have had better in ABQ. Not a place I would go out...More
