“Must Try!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

This very small hidden restaurant is very relaxing and the locals seems to love it. My friend and i were seated right away. I ordered the Chimichanga with chicken.... OMG i think this was the best Mexican food i have tasted yet!
The place seems to be a old small home converted into a cozy home restaurant with a peaceful atmosphere. There is some Mexican decor and some historic photos of the Mexican history framed on the walls.
The service was incredible. food was very well cooked and hot when it arrived. you get chips and dip when you arrive (also very Good)
Only negative thing i could find was that it was a tad cramped.... But worth it for the Food!
Would have loved to sit outside but it was very cold and snowy....

“Great Old Style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

One of our favorite restaurants. Free chips and three kinds of salsa. Very good food prepared in an authentic central american style. Prices are good, portions are generous and service is friendly without being too intrusive. Daily specials on food and drinks. The mango margarita is my wife's favorite. The guacamole made at your table is great.

“A new favorite place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2011

Looking for reasonable price and good food, this has become my default place to take my wife, or a good place to go with fellow workers at lunch. Always good, solid Mexican food. Daily drink specials and usually a food special too. Great price performer. Small, but we always get a seat -- one can sit at the counter and watch the food being cooked too. Reliably good.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

It's fun to be greeted like old friends. The menu is ordinary Mexican, but the food is good. Love the guacamole made tableside.
