Love their food!

While visiting the area again, we had to go back to our favorite Mexican food restaurant. It had been 10 years ago since we had eaten there and the food was still great and very reasonably priced. Love their chips & salsa. We had a bowl of queso and a combination plate which included a tamale, a... read more

My husband and I frequently ate here up until his death. I then continued eating here, but things changed when it was only me. It became an atmosphere of wait staff joking with each other, using cell phones, and ignoring me and others. I went mid afternoon when the restaurant was very slow and there were regulars who would show... More

Been going for years - only ate inside dinner once - and it was crowded and too hot. They knew my car when pulled up there for a couple years in the morning for breakfast order. It's very popular and busy - but they are highly efficient in their service. Quickly take order out walk up window, and people also... More

Been our favorite Tex-Mex resturant since 1999. Family operation which provides consistent quality and service. Good portions for a reasonable price.

This is a typical family operated, small Mexican restaurant, menu is good, but not extensive and worth a visit for a casual Mexican meal.

It is, you might say, a hole in the wall. Tiny, old, and usually very good TexMex. Service can vary from good to average. In many, many visits, I've never had bad service. Can be a bit warm inside, but personally I'll endure it to get authentic good food. The side window is open to 1 for breakfast tacos and... More

I decided to stop here because I was hungry, and this place was crowded. It took a while for someone to take my order because the wait staff consisted of two people on a busy Saturday morning. I ordered the dried beef with eggs. The eggs were scrambled with dried beef, onions, peppers, and tomatoes. The dish came with refried... More
