“Great Food, Great Service, Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

My wife and I go here frequently and really find the food and the service nothiing short of excellent. I particularly like the way the red chile is prepared. Perfecto! as we say in this part of the world. The service is excellent, as well. Quick service and excellent food - what more do you need?

“If you're in Espanola...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

If you're in Espanola, you should eat here. Lots of room and seating, family-friendly, and the last couple times we've been here, we've had really great service. Food is very good! Worth a trip.

“Perfect for our group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

We just visited the weekend of Good Friday. There were a group of 10 of us and this restaurant didn't let us down. All of the restaurants in town were busy with people coming from the Santuario. Table of 8 was not a problem for them to accommodate us. We ordered 5 orders of their combo fajitas for everyone to share. They were so good that we came back on Saturday for more. The fajitas were served with guacamole and fresh tortillas. Everything was perfect!
