We got seated, however they forgot to give us menus. We waited another 10 minutes still no menus. The couple next to us were trying to get drinks. We left after 15 minutes of no service. Breakfast . Not a good time!

Great location: indoor/outdoor seating. Seat yourself. Friendly staff. Very good menu. Excellent Chicken & Bean Burrito and Palacio Club, along with Pozole Chile Stew. Well worth the visit.

We were passing through and stopped to have lunch. This was a great choice. I'd go back if I didn't live out of state. We had the green chili soup and enchiladas. It had a kick to both but fantastic!
