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

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

Long wait to get food(only 3 tables in use). Never did get tortillas we asked for. Waitress sat playing on cell phone whole time we were there. Used to be a good place, NOT anymore. Will NOT go again.

We love the food, like to go there for breakfast, the migas are my favorite. We also like to pick up fajita tacos from the walk up window to take home. It's a popular local stop - not much to look at, but the food is very good.
