Took the family here last night and I really enjoyed it. The Chile Rellano on my combination plat was excellent! Texas Margaritas have Cuervo Gold and Grand Marnier for very smooth libation. Dos Equis Amber is on tap. Be sure to try the homemade hot sauce - red or green. I preferred the green

El Norteno became the high school hang out after high school events . Both parents and kids could go and either sit together or be in seperate rooms. They can handle a crowd!!
