Stopped in for a quick lunch. Had a bowl of green chili that may have been the best I have ever eaten. Pork was melt in your mouth tender, sauce was perfectly spiced and the vegetables perfect. Had some flour tortillas to complete the meal.

Small inside with a small outside area, but the service and food is excellent. Very traditional Mexican/American food like you might have eaten in Southern California Yum! Very reasonable prices and more food than you can eat. Give it a try its well worth it.
