Food was warm, homemade and took about 45 min to receive. They serve a warm local macaroni soup that taste local. Mexican cheese enchiladas were melted cheese in corn tortillas. Nothing to write home about. When hungry this will do. Girls are very friendly.

Big servings for the price. Although, if busy, service slows down a bit when during dinner or lunch peak times. Otherwise, food is very tasty and authentic
