We haven’t been here for years. It’s small and looks different, but the food is amazing. I had the best tamales. It’s real Mexican food. I can’t wait for my next visit. They don’t accept debit or credit cards, so have your check book ready.

I would consider this place a hole in the wall, out of your way place locals are aware of. The locale isn't great, could be a bit bigger but great food!
