Went there for dinner and had a couple of carnitas tacos. The meat was long, stringy, dry and tough. The worst carnitas I ever had. The refritos were soupy, and the rice, well who could mess up rice. Pretty disappointing, and I won't be going there again.

Charleys Says - try the pupusas. This is a dish from San Salvador and it is wonderful for a light lunch of dinner. One of these and a chili Verde tostada was wonderful for me on my last visit. Simple, small, hidden in Templeton and worth the stop!
