    Death Valley Veggie Wrap is a must. Don't forget the waitresses don't come to you and make sure you look at the cool, old posters decorating the walls. Sip on a Tokyo Rose and give the place a chance!

    If you order the Macho Nachos don't let them give you a bunch of small broken chips. Also, the description says layers of cheese and the cooks sometimes only put 1 layer of cheese on top.
