I ordered a chile relleno and my husband had a beef burrito. The food was fine, but nothing out of the ordinary. It is kind of odd that they charge you for a 2nd basket of chips. I am glad we went because we were really in the mood for Mexican food, but it just wasn't a place that stands... read more

The cheese dip appetizer was fantastic. My wife's chicken soup was made with all fresh ingredients and was excellent. I had one of the house specials which was also excellent. Very friendly service, quiant restaurant, unique - what is not to like. We will be back

Drove past this place multiple times without noticing it. Saw it on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try, and it was fantastic! Great service, AWESOME food, and very reasonably priced!

Read the reviews and decided to finally try this place. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. As we were enjoying our fantastic meal, he serenaded us with a song! Our 10yr old and 8yr old enjoyed their meals and they were very open to adapting recipes for my vegetarian diet. We will definitely go back.

This place is proof TripAdvisor works it is a small building and didn't look very busy I would have never went in if I didn't read the reviews and I would have missed great Mexican food

We visit here about once a month as we live close by. It's run by one very friendly family where the daughters wait tables, the son-in-laws are the cooks and the Dad makes sure everyone is happy. Not fancy but good food with a nice selection of entrees I'm stuck on the fajitas but it seems everything is good!. Much... More

So this was our first time and we were not disappointed! Decor was fun and colorful. The service was great the owner was very pleasant. Food was great, I actually let... More

It is really hard for me to believe that people think this is good traditional mexican food. Maybe I'm spoiled living in Texas for many years but this isn't even average. It's also way too expensive and didn't appear all that clean. Charging for a second basket of chips? Seriously?

Have eaten here numerous times. One thing is always the same, the wonderful family that owns it. Consistently great food at a reasonable price. Especially enjoy the shrimp chimichangas and the burrito nohock.
