I ate there with three other people this past Sunday - about 12:30 pm. Visited off and on over the last few years since moving into the area five years ago. The service was great, and the atmosphere was good - families, couples, people lazily reading the paper. Good vibe.

The food was terrible. I ordered a New Mexico pork dish, and my GF ordered some kind of beef dish. Others ordered an assortment of breakfast tacos.

I cannot confirm it, but the meat in my GF's dish and my own, tasted like it had come frozen and pre-seasoned/cooked in a bag. My GF joked that it had "meat" flavoring. Both tasted like beef stew out of a can, with an added healthy portion of MSG.

Though, not expecting much, I was embarrassed taking out of town guests here. Next time, I guess I should order more simply - and order breakfast tacos or something.
