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....

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.
