Avoid the chain restaurants and support a true Mom & Pop family run business. Nothing fancy, but what do you want with a "real deal" great Mexican homemade food establishment.... More

I love this restaurant. This is a great family atmosphere. The green chili is very good, the portions are generous and Daniel and his family have never compromised on their quality and service. We have been coming here for years.
