If you’re looking for good food and service without paying for the ambiance this is a good stop. We had already been on the road for a while and just wanted a quick non-fast food meal. Here we found a filling and tasty choice. Authentic...More

Stopped in and had the combination plate with tamale, chile relleno and beef enchilada. Everything was excellent and the lady that serves you is super friendly. It was pretty empty being July 3 but couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Also great salsa bar...More

Had a combo plate the other day with chili rellenos, enchiladas and tamales to go along with rice and beans. What's great about the tamale is that it is unwrapped and smothered in red sauce and all for under $12. Enough food to split with...More

Found this via Trip Advisor. We tried out the Torta Maya. It has ham, chorizo, steak, cheese, onions, peppers, etc. It was more than enough. The torta was good. Beans were flavorful (probably fried in lard). Wasn't crazy about the rice. Needed to be steamed...More

Kinda pricey. Small salsa bar. I would stick to the basics burrito and tacos. Good service. In a small strip mall.

Once again, Trip Advisor reviews helped us find this place and have an amazing dinner. It's in a little strip mall, tucked in the corner, you can almost miss it. When you walk in, it doesn't look like anything fancy. Oh, but, the magic that...More

If you want authentic, savory killer Mexican food, this is the place. It's a mom and pop restaurant with plenty of good old fashioned warm greetings. The food is beyond flavorful, it's what you would call, 'HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY DANCE'. Such savory dishes, my favorite...More
