Nieto's used to be Carlos's restaurant but the crowd changed and so did Nieto. He opened this more casual and affordable version of its former self and has some very good choices on the menu.

Another trip to Nieto's where the food continues to be great with lots of autumn menu items added. Unfortunately, it seems that for our last two visits when Carlos or Debbie Nieto are not in the restaurant, service is questionable. The food service was pretty...More
