We stopped here looking for a hole in the wall, local restaurant. This was a nice place with a very friendly host who explained about the difference in red and green chiles. I had the chili rellenos with the green chilis and really enjoyed it. Its a slow heat that creeps up on you... good stuff. The host was very... More

Small FAMILY run authentic and delicious. Every item made in the kitchen. Tamale was the best I ever had. In a small strip center. Don't miss this one. The only draw back is no alcohol. But please don't let this keep you from a great meal!

After a week of dealing with a cold, I wanted something spicy to help clear up my head. My boyfriend took me here, one of his favourite places for lunch during the week. I had the chili rellenos (my favourite dish) with green chili. Everything was tasty, hot, and fresh. The host looks like an intimidating guy, but he is... More

This is a hole in the wall that could easily be overlooked at the end of a strip mall. Once you know about it it is likely that you will return as they take pride in the food they make. Definitely a locals place to eat where most know the owners by name. Have heard they have a great Breakfast... More

Love this place! Food is fresh and great! The staff is super friendly, my kids love their bean burritos! My favorites are the asada torta, taco salad and their posole is delicious. It's a bit pricey for the kids plates but great overall!

This restaurant is owned and run by Francisca and her family. The tortillas are home made, the queso dip is served with fried flour tortillas and is the best appetizer I've ever had in a Mexican restaurant! They will help you with your Spanish and are friendly and real....order your sopapillas even if you think you'll be too full!

Okay - someone told us about this place so we tried it. We weren't impressed when we drove up but we went in anyway and I'm glad we did. The staff was very friendly and seemed eager to see us. The flauta was good, the taco salad was good, and the chimichanga was great (huge portion). The salsa was smokey... More

They have the best salsa, all their food is made to order, no frozen stuff here, it is family owned and they all do a great job, they are closed on Sundays and that is the day they deep clean. Their food is as good as my own and I have never said that about anyone's Mexican food before. The... More
