We had a great lunch here. Well priced, super service and fresh food. This is truly a family-run business and it shows. They were working together like clockwork. And I really appreciated the complimentary fried ice cream for my birthday!

I judge a Mexican restaurant on three things: first and foremost, the chili rellenos; second, the menudo; and third, the attentiveness and friendliness of the service. This restaurant has mastered all three-- which means everything else is most likely spectacular. Chili rellenos and menudo are two dishes that are really the signature of the chefs culinary ability. They are all... More

I stopped here for breakfast just after they opened on a sunday ,...the place was already pretty busy and for Oracle that's saying something! I ordered the huevos rancheros, It was spicy, a bit wet though...but it was good, now I'm not sure but I think the coffee tasted of beer..maybe, maybe not. service was good , about 8 locals... More

You get a lot of food for your money. Friendly staff and good service. It's not great food but it's decent. You won't leave hungry.

Just had a great meal in a very relaxed atmosphere. Bring your own wine and enjoy a great steak, wonderful Pasole. At a truly nice price.

We have always enjoyed the very authentic, very tasty food here, but were sadly disappointed on our recent visit. It was hard to find the cheese in the cheese enchiladas and the sauce tasted it like it came straight from a can. The refried beans were too thick and sticky, not up to par either. I have never liked the... More

This place literally had the best quesadilla I have ever eaten. The cheese and chicken melted in my mouth. I get hungry just thinking about it. Our waiter was friendly, and you can tell it is a place not many tourists go to. We never would have stopped if it hadn't been for my family who live nearby. The reason... More

We found this little restaurant on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. It is easy to miss on the main road through town. Several locals gave a sure sign of a good lunch experience. This is a family run business and the prices are very reasonable and portions are very generous. If your travels take you though the small town... More
