Small, but good food

Very small place, but pretty good food. Some of it is a bit over-priced though. Their green chili is very good.

Went in to have lunch and ordered a round of beers. The waitress informed us that she was to young to bring them and that the cook would be bringing them out. We told her that was fine and requested some water to help wash down the chips and salsa. We never got the water, never got the beers, and... More

After getting a new job nearby and only being the area a couple of days, I stopped here to taste the local fare. This restaurant rivals any Tex-Mex place in Texas! And being a native Texan, I've had more than my fair share of Mexican food. It is a very small quaint place. Max capacity might be around 60 people.... More

Every Friday night my husband and I order a Burrito Rosqueto. It is AWESOME! So delicious and so big, we have to share it. It's like a fajita inside a flour tortilla - grilled chicken, onions, green peppers - then covered with this amazing sauce, guacamole, sour cream, a tomato and a radish. It comes with a little bit of... More

I was horrified after asking the waitress twice for a drink, then when the food came it was covered in what they labeled as "cheese" which tasted like canned cheese. I thought I was getting a chimichanga. The meat was nasty. I sent it back to get it without the cheese and it wasn't even edible .. please! I don't... More

This restaurant serves some very great tasting dishes that are authentically Mexican. This time I ordered their Fajita quesadilla and it was delicious. It reminded me of my mother's home cooking. Great value as we'll.

We stopped in after passing a few chain restaurants. Portions were a great value for the money. Service was attentive without being smothering. My husband loved his chimichanga. I liked my combo meal. We'd definitely go there again.

Outstanding food, and an outstanding value for the money. The lunch specials are what draw me to return time and time again. I never ask what I am ordering. I have had some very pleasant surprises in flavor and cusine by picking a random dish off the lunch special menu. I am never able to finish the plate, and have... More

Jesse and his family are super nice and friendly. The Mexican food is best around with very quick service. My parents from California say it is the most authentic to what they are used to from their area. We haven't had a bad meal there ever. Order a side of deep fried Jalapeno's, they are not battered and most of... More
