Hard to find...in the Gazebo shopping center. Very good salsa. They have a great combo plate where you can choose from 14 choices. I had the chicken enchilada,chicken burrito and chicken taco. You get a choice of green and red sauce as a topping. I could taste the chiles in the red sauce...very good. The chicken burrito was very big.... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner, with cheese enchiladas, chile rellenos, and guacamole. Two of the party thought the green sauce was a little hotter than expected. It is an authentic Mexican style restaurant. We had good service in a timely manner. Will go back the next time we are in the area.

Family owned (you can see the owners running to and from their home in the back where i'm sure they are also cooking). The Mole chicken enchiladas are worth the visit alone. Chips a little stale but i didn't care, they brought me a fresh basket and were great. Owners daughters and wife are waitresses and very friendly! Support locally... More

Quaint little place off the main drag. We sat on the back porch in the evening which faces west and has nice afternoon light. The couple that own the place were very nice. Service was excellent and so was the food. Will definitely go back again.

We stopped in for lunch today after reading great reviews from YELP. We were very happy with our experience. The hot sauce is homemade with roasted chiles . Spicy ... In a good way. They have a variety of choices on the menu, including a daily special. We've eaten at almost all of the other Mexican restaurants in town and... More

Parking is a little tight and the entrance is tucked away. The menu options are simple and a bit pricey, but it's expected because of the area. Red cheese enchilladas were pretty good, but not enough food was served for the price. The red chile was delicious. The interior decor is sort of thrown together. The tea was almost water,... More
