“Authentic Mexican options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Usually very crowded and limited parking except on the street. Crowded for a reason.. the food is very good although almost everything is a little too spicy or my taste. They will tone down the heat if you ask so be sure to do so if you are a little wimpy like me.

“Super Mexican food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Enjoy margarita's and good Mexican food. Deck area is great to sit out on in good weather. Get there early as usually a line out the door.

“Quality over time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

12 years ago, my wife and i moved into the area and happened to drive by the restaurant on a friday after work. the outdoor patio was packed and we felt that was a good sign.

we returned the next friday and have been returning every week since then.

the green chilie verde is outstanding; best we've ever eaten anywhere including Mexico. the is not a bad item on the menu and i can attest that i have tried every item.

it would be mistake for you to miss this outstanding restaurante and local institution.

“Best Mexican Food anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I'm able to walk to this restaurant from my house. The owners are friendly, caring people. Help is fast. Wonderful tacos, burritos, tamales, taco salads. And margueritas are excellent. Whenever we have visitors staying with us we take them to Efrain's. Now, they insist on going when they are here.

Outdoor seating. Homey, plenty of parking, a small bar if that's what you want. Good prices.

“Crowded, surly service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

Not much else to say - except to say that it is oddly popular
