Reviews

Only visited for breakfast (several times!) but each time was delicious. I recommend the Santa Fe potato pancakes which were really good. Most breakfasts come with a choice of toast or their banana bread, which is really delicious. Staff are friendly and efficient. Well worth a visit.

Good food just a block from hotel
Lady at hotel suggested the Southwest Diner for dinner the day we arrived. While the meatloaf and chili were good, the coconut cream pie was the highlight of the meal. We came back a second day and had the corned beef hash special for breakfast....More ... read more

Great little place.. it was really busy, but i expected it to be for a Sunday morning. As a former server, I thought they were a little understaffed as far as hostess/serving wise but they honestly did a great job with what they had. If you are coming with a larger party, I would try and call ahead or have someone show 30 minutes ear ... read more

I'd give it 5 stars but the decor needs to be freshened up. The service is friendly, fast and efficient. The menu has some old fashioned goodies as well as some Tex Mex entrees. Very generous portions with very reasonable prices. Chicken fajitas is my "go to". The caramelized onion and peppers are so delicious! It comes sizzling hot ... read more

Great food, and always friendly
Stopped by for a cup of coffee while waiting to go to an appointment, and the aromas of the great food made me hungry, so had my favorite here, - the Pork Green Chili omelet. Really fills you up!

We came here for a late breakfast one morning. I wanted a chili verde burrito. Very tasty and was just what I wanted and more. It was so big but I kept eating until I just had to pour the salsa on the rest of it to keep me from eating the whole thing! Hahaha (we weren't going home afterward so I didn't take the leftovers) We will be ... read more

We ate breakfast here. Loved Those Potatoes they are fried with peppers. Homemade banana nut bread. Good sausage gravy and homemade biscuits.

This is a place for ambiance. The prices are excellent. A meal with two entrees and a side of rice and beans was less than $10. The food isn't the highest quality but as stop over on trip to or through Vegas it's great. The staff was nice and the decor of the restaurant is memorable and worth the visit.

Local Eatery in Boulder City

The food is really good; a wonderful blend of Tex-mex and classic diner dishes. The place is quaint and it has a unique atmosphere. It gets pretty busy at lunchtime, so beware of that, especially on weekends.

We like our little dinner here. Food is alright, sometimes we think whoever is cooking needs to be more attentive and creative with some dishes. This is coming from a guy who's been cooking for a living for 50 yrs. Service is always great. Especially with Bridget and Kaleb.

You will have to look for parking, but this is a great little greasy spoon. The staff are super friendly and it seems like this is a popular place for locals. The banana bread was a fantastic end to a great breakfast. I got the everything sandwich, eggs, bacon, cheese, chillies and avocado on a toasted sourdough bread ummmmm.
