“Mmm, Mmm, Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

No fast food Tex-Mex (Taco Bell type) here, but authentic Mexico type street food where the food is freshly cooked each day, assembled hot, and the choice of Red or Green sauce providing the necessary finishing touch to their staple of choices. They have very limited Americanized Tex-Mex offerings (like Nachos) so most of the Menu is variety of specialized cooked meat in Burritos and Tacos from Breakfast through Supper, with specialized dishes thrown in throughout the week like Pasole, Tamales, Menudo and the like (entree, or w/ rice & beans). This converted Gas Station (now a Grill with a quick in/out convenience store) has limited seating with just a few 2 seat tables and chairs and some counter stools at the window. Fear not as your Take Out will arrive home hot. Would love to provide a score of 5, but they would need to increase their salsa offerings beyond the current two of Red and Green.

“Authentic!”

Most authentic Mexican food you will find north of the CA border. Preorder your tamales a couple days ahead!
