“EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch there, ordered bean &chicharron burrito, partner had breakfast burrito, both were hot and tasty. Sopapillas for dessert were delicious. Reasonable prices, good service. We will return.

Authentic Mexican food :One of the best place for breakfast or lunch or brunch. The only thing that they don't have alcohol but its okay when you are there for breakfast. Service was great.

This cafe style family owned & operated restaurant is a gem. My meal was totally satisfying. Best green chile I've had probably...ever. No exaggeration.

“Excellent New Mexican Breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

The best service! Excellent green sauce! Numerous locals seem to have made this their regular breakfast stop in LC. The wait staff seemed to know almost everyone in the place. My breakfast was perfect. I highly recommend stopping in. I most certainly will go back!
