Good food, quite filling, and very cheap by Dutch standards. Service was great, and done with a big smile. Will recommend for anybody looking for a place to eat close to lone pine.

I hate reviewing places badly but this place was just plain nasty. The service was VERY nice tho. I felt so bad for them because they were so under staffed. But still were so positive and had smiles on their faces. This review is mainly based on the food. $13 a plate for very mediocre burritos. The beans were full of lard and nothing tasted fresh.
They do have good Chardonnay for cheap and they pour your beer in a frosted glass. (Maybe just go there for a drink??)
It was hard to drop 56 dollars on our family of four for food I felt I might get the "cha cha's" from.
My husbands carnitas tasted like raccoon. (Not that I've had raccoon...but I am assuming).
Even on the go...would have rather gone to Mcdonalds. (And I hate Mcdonalds.)
It surprises me that there are so many good reviews. Maybe we just went on a bad kitchen day??

Everything here is delicous!! Food is def authentic. Best Chicken Enchiladas I've had in a while. Perfect with a Tecate! If you like super spicy salsa ask the waitress to bring you their "home" spicy salsa's (sooooo good) :)

Like to try local joints and this one is VERY local. Interior hasn't been upgraded in decades - which I thought was quaint. The food and service were nothing short of exceptional. We'll be back.

Much better choices in town. Service not personal. Mediocre lukewarm food. Very coffee shop like. Sorry I cannot recommend.
