Most Mexican restaurants are "Americanized," most bordering on fast food. This is one of the few exceptions in Stockton. I learned of it from old timers (pre-1998 in my case) and on my second visit, which prompted me to write this, I had their "albondigas" (meatballs) in a ranchero sauce which were to die for. Unfortunately, it is the Special only(?) on Tuesdays. My bechmark for Mexican authenticity is whole beans and corn tortillas. "Refried" is usually canned and barely tolerable. Although I have my two or three favorite Mexican dishes their menu is extensive, and they have a different special each day. A Slad bar included with all beans is also a different and welcome touch for many.
