We dined at the Oaxaca Restaurant on our way to return our rental car after reading positive reviews at Trip Advisor. The Chile Relleno was the best I've had in quite a while, the enchiladas were very good. Everything was fresh and served piping hot.

The chips were good and our waitress was really nice. We ordered some tacos, enchiladas and chicken fajitas. Everything was really good and the restaurant seemed popular.

I had the machaca chimichanga - and it was fantastic. My son loved the carne asada, and my daughter liked her cheeseburger as well -... More
