This little cafe is that perfect kind of hole-in-wall place that is fun to check out. This restaurant has been around for some time and has a loyal following. They serve some unusual dishes as well as those more typical. Huge burritos and large servings for the enchilada plates. My vegetarian family members like the quesadillas.

And I've eaten at a gazillion Mexican restaurants. Lalo's is the real deal. Friendly, efficient service and delicious food. No chips. The salsa is on the table in big bowls...four different kinds, some quite picante. The menu is extensive. We had chicken tamales, cheese and chile tamales, stuffed poblano pepper, carnitas tacos. The masa (the cornmeal mixture that makes up... More
