Reviews were really good on this restaurant. We drove a bit out of the way to find this one. We had quesadillas and a plate with beef, peppers, onions (not fajitas), beans and rice.

From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but the restaurant is large and exceptionally clean. The salsa comes warmed and was very good. As we were there on a Saturday, the Caldo de Res (beef stew) is on the menu, which I tried. My wife had the chicken gorditas and an order of guacamole. Everything was homemade and delicious.... More

We are in town for my sons surgery, and were looking for something close to what we would eat at home. This was hands down the best restaurant meal I have ever eaten. And we eat out, ALOT.

Most authentic Mexican I've had outside of Mexico. Not your run of the mill American Mexican restaurant, so come here if you're looking for something different and tasty.

Had lunch with my CEO - his first trip. Another great lunch experience. Had chicken fajitas and they were again excellent. Love their salsa!

Don't go here looking for Tex-Mex, fancy decor or high-falutin' atmosphere. Do go here, however, if you are looking for good food served by real people. The food is always good and the proprietors are always friendly. A regular stop on my lunch circuit.
