We probably stop by or order take out twice a month. The restaurant is nothing fancy and no alcohol but the carnitas is delicious and the service always friendly. We love the pico de gallo, too.

This is a hold out from the old San Carlos. We go here when the kids want Mexican. The food is very good, has a yummy mini salsa bar with chips and one of the last places to have fresh carrot and oj. Great for the price and the food.

There is something for everyone, though, the grilled chicken plate special (not on menu, usually printed and taped to bottom of menu board) is to die for and tasty as well. My husband and daughter like the chorizo and eggs, and the tamales. I... More
