Suzie Belen's is a small restaurant but they had an additional room for parties and The plates look so inviting when they are served and the aroma makes you just want to start eating. They serve large portions and everything is so good.

Stopped here for lunch while passing through town. Excellent food, everything was fresh and delicious. Very authentic and huge portions, if we weren't traveling we would have leftovers for days. Service was fast and friendly. Definitely worth the try!

Back when Suzy first opened up with a family run affair she attended to everything. The food was really good and so was the service. They moved, moved back, expanded, etc... but there appears to be no attention to detail anymore. The food was very average at best, and the place needs a good updating. Unfortunately what once was, isn't... More

a family owned business with staff that is courteous and helpful. One can get typical Mexican food besides tacos and enchiladas, although these are good. Good value for the $iw

We needed a place near the zombie train and this worked out great. There was plenty of food and the staff was very attentive. The wife thought her tamales were dry, but everyone else enjoyed their order. Reasonable prices made the day.

Excellent Mexican food served in a nice atmosphere. Tough to recommend anything special, it's all pretty good. Personally I love their chicken enchiladas with mole sauce.

One of the better Mexican restaurants in town. Friendly staff. Local watering hole. Located off the main highway, but worth the search.

The mexican food at this restaurant is good. Not the best I've had, but good. Ambience is lacking, but still a fun place to bring the family.
