Sadly, this long time Vegas restaurant has now closed. 64 years of family-run business with a lot of history. We will miss this place.

Cute little place with too expensive and bad food. Huevos Rancheros $10 for poorly cooked beans and cold pasty dark red rice. Must be new owner, I have eaten here three times over many years and it was never this bad before.

Not just any Mexican restaurant, has alot of history. Actually Old Vegas`oldests restaurant if I am not mistaken. Serving New Mexican Cuisine. Good meal to get you warmed up for your night out in Vegas. Good Burritos and Enchiladas for $10-$13.

This is not a restaurant to go to if you want glitz and glamour. It is a family owned place for multiple generations. Everything is delicious. But the salsa is the thing. Once you try it you'll crave it. I like the chunky style, my husband the smooth one. We are locals here in Las Vegas so we've tried most... More

It is so small that people in their business suits line up outside beginning at about noon on weekdays. They've been in business here for about 40 years. Save room for the sopapillas!

This restaurant is on a word of mouth thing. You would never just happen on this restaurant. It is family owned and fabulous! It's all authentic old fashioned food. Everything on the menu is excellent!

The absolute huevos con papas in the world including my trips to Chapala, Mexico. Try it with the green chili.

The salsa with the chips is clearly homemade and not out of a can. Fresh tomato flavors with the right amount of spicy notes. My favorite is the green chile sauce over the burrito. Good value with rice and beans.

I've been going to this restaurant for over 20 years and the food is always great. My favorite is the chile verde - nice chunks of pork and green chiles served with fresh flour tortillas. Yum!!!
