My wife and I have eaten a lot of Mexican food throughout AZ and NM. The shredded tacos and carne asada tacos were excellent. We also tried the sopapillas... absolutely the best! Felix was a great host as well. Support these folks!

We found this place by asking at the grocery store. Two other folks recommended or told us we had picked the best Mexican restaurant in town. It's really solid and homey. Family works there. Quick service. No alcohol. Classic cheap eats. Very solid.
