Authentic Tex-Mex

You really can't go wrong with Tex-Mex in this little hole in wall tucked away in a little known spot in the city. I encouraged my parents to accompany me here for dinner one evening while I was in town visiting. One visit to Grace's nacho stand during the fair is not enough. I needed more. We were... read more

It's always a pleasure to order take-out or eat in. Cindy and Grace's family I have known for more than 40 years. The food is always delicious!

Food was very dry and tasteless. We all had diff. things and everyone agreed we will not return. I really had my heart set for some good food. Should have looked elsewhere.

There is nothing that beats Cindy Nacho or the Enchiladas. They are a very sweet and wonderful family owned business. The staff will explain it all to you.. Amazing assortment of salsa. All homemade.

We stopped here based on reviews on this site and a recent article in the local paper about a Burrito eating contest. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and a great value. We each had the 1/2 burrito with 2 Cindy nachos and it was plenty to eat. Our waitress brought out 2 kinds of salsa to try... More

Amazing food for the price. The place is always excellent and is a must stop for the days when your just craving a burrito (the large ones can be about the size of your head).

This is the BEST place to eat in the ENTIRE state! Food is great, service is family-like, people are great. the establishment could be a little more spacious but the close quarters makes it cozy :)

Not sure exactly long, but over 30 years in business must mean they are serving great food at a great price. Specials everyday. Cindy Nachos are almost a meal themselves.
