Appeared to be a re-constituted drive-in. Arrived around 8:00 a.m. for breakfast and there was only one other table occupied. Were not sure what it would be like. Extensive menu selections all looked great. Place was exceptionally clean. Staff was polite, professional, and fast. Breakfast was great! By the time we finished breakfast the place was full with customers waiting.... More

My favorite place for early Saturday morning burritos and coffee. Staffed by family members as servers and cooks who take great pride in their food and service. Easy to see why this Mexican food restaurant has been rated at the top in Deming despite considerable competition.

Went yesterday for lunch, had the combination plate. First le t me say, he gets his tamales from Texas and they are much better than most restaurants in Deming. I have to say I prefer very spicy food, I ordered red, and it was tasty, but for my taste a little bland. The taco was awesome. Service friendly and the... More

We were driving through town and stopped here for lunch. It really does not look like much from the outside. The inside is very small and very plain but the service was very friendly. I tried the combination plate, which had a relleno, a taco, a tamale, and an enchilada. I got it Christmas style, meaning both red and green... More

Went there in between lunch and dinner. Great service. We had a quesadilla and a chicken enchilada. Both came fast and were very good. Loved the green chile sauce.

The family is so friendly and wonderful. Look past the old drive in exterior, inside is a cozy and clean little restaurant run by a friendly and professional local family. The food is traditional Mexican. It reminded me of traditional fare we used to get in Tucson as a kid. The sopapillas were exceptionally good. A great place to stop... More

I dined here for lunch and while the food was good (not great) and I was promptly served, I was disappointed in the unmentioned additional charges for my meal. I ordered a Combination Plate which simply stated it included one taco, one enchilada, one tamale, and one rellenos. When I ordered, I asked for a chicken enchilada and a soft... More
