This was a small hole in the wall restaurant, nothing fancy, but the food was good, authentic, and affordable.

The food is delicious and the atmosphere is so homey. It's a tiny place with employees who care and know what they're doing. It's my top choice for mexican food, and I try a lot of mexican!

This place isn't fancy, wish they had better options on... More
