Here are my thoughts: PROs: -the homemade corn tortillas are one of the highlights. Really good. -the pozole was good and flavorful, and a huge bowl was $8.25.... More

Very good food. Their carnitas so good and tender. The chilaquiles one of the best in town. Chile Verde with plenty of meat and the sauce just right not to spicey. And you can't go wrong with the homemade flour or corn tortillas.

I enjoy the Nachos and the Chile Verde. The service is great and I also like the name. The happy pig - When I walk out of the restaurant that is "ME" Happy Pig

Ok I came to this place because I wanted to try something different and because people recommend this place, for one, it looks like a little Mexican store, then the waitress felt like in a rush and in a hurry to take my order, mind the place only had 3 tables.

Had a great breakfast there a couple days ago, 2/7/2014. Fast real friendly service, good food at a fair price. I'll go back and try lunch and dinner next time I'm down.

What a great little hole in the wall. Salsa is fresh and spicy. Best chili relleno I've had in a long time. Homemade corn tortillas are awesome. I am going to try the fish taco next time. The sauce on the enchilladas was almost like a mole - rich and spicy. And they use authentic white cheese not cheddar.
