Delicious! If you wonder why it comes with only 2 tacos, it's cuz they are huge and savory. Welcome soup is my favorite part

I started coming to this restaurant when they first opened at a very small location on Solano. Later they moved to this much larger location on Amador. The signature “welcome soup” is always a delightful way to waken your tastebuds before the main dish arrives....More

We were staying overnight in Las Cruces and decided to check out this locally owned establishment. The food was excellent and so was the service. I have nothing but positive things to say and I recommend checking it out
