Like always we found this place on TA. The reviews looked good and it was a block from our Dr's office. This place is atypical to say the least for a storefront Mexican restaurant on Main St. It didn't disappoint. We impressed with its outstanding cuisine including its unique tastes and great presentations. We shared a cup of the Sopa... More

WOW!!! Our 1st time here & I am so pleased & FULL!! I had the green chilaquiles with carnitas. Beyond delicious. The green sauce was the best flavor I have had, a little sweetness & lime. Yummy!! Added $3.50 for the carnitas but worth it. Hubble had the red chilaquiles with carnitas. "Delicious"!he said. We will be back! Next time... More

This place was so good. The waiter and staff were so friendly. The food was so flavorful. If you're the type that likes a savory lunch with well developed flavors- tomato, chipotle, lemon juice, roasted golden potatoes, a generous portion of duck breast, and velvety runny egg yolks- all for $12- you need this restaurant in your life. I was... More

Best chilaquiles I've ever had. Fantastic sauce and presentation. The entire breakfast and lunch menu looked great but I don't know if I could order anything else these were so good. Small casual setting in a non distinct strip mall. Good coffee too.

Family loves this place. Coffee is great and food is delicious. The Main Street location is small. We had the French Toast, Anepalco's Chilaquiles, and Huevos Divorciados.

Didn't really know what to expect on our first visit, but we were pleasantly surprised at the great food. Tried both the green and red chilaquilas. Great flavor and nice presentation. A scrambled egg is added to the top. Those who like spicy will want to add some hot sauce, but I was glad they weren't too 'hot' to eat.
