Food not that great. Burnt chorizo. Chili was awful. Service was worse. Never came back to refill our drinks. All we ordered was eggs and chorizo and couldn’t get that right. Never again.

They had awesome service and the food was spectacular. My wife found the red sauce a bit spicy but it was perfect to me! I highly recommend it.

Friend raved about the Green Chile.... tried it while traveling thru town, it was nothing special, very disappointed. Service was kinda bad also. El Rialto here in Las Vegas is MUCH better. Won't be back.... Ever.
