“Good Mexican food at the right price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

We were able to make reservations for a large group(13) and were given a private room called the library. Chips and salsa very good. Nice variety of mostly spicy dishes with one item avaiable for those opposed to spicy, a chicken and cheese quesadilla. Liters of margaritas available and tasty.

“Average food, great margaritas”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Service was below average, although the food came quick. Took a small group of people and only margaritas were raved about. Dingy environment

“Gringo food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012 via mobile

This is classic gringo Mexican food place, just look at the clientele any day. Sure the food is cheap, smothered in sauces and lots of cheese melted on top. If you want good authentic Mexican food with unique traditional and regional flavors don't go here. It is just one step up from Taco Bell.

“Great food!!!”

The chili verde is really good. The service was good. We wish the windows had blinds. All in all we will be back.

“Great food, great authenticity.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

Great stuff! Authentic northern New Mexico cuisine. Didn't get to try the chile rellenos, but everything else we had was good. We had a party of 14, so service was a bit slow, but they kept us with chips and salsa and drinks and water. I had the "Efrain" burrito, which is a creation of the chef's with whatever he wants in it. Good! The spicy green chile was good and spicy, like it should be. They also have excellent red chile. Enchiladas are large and generous. Not many vegetables, but that's ok. Definitely recommend it, and would love to go back whenever we're in the area.
