Day after Christmas so most closed, we stopped here. Mexican/American...very good. Service was great, friendly and fast. Would recommend - yes the chicken plate or the burrito. Sauces need to be hotter, for us.

I'm usually very cautious about Mexican food in New Mexico, but their food had great flavor. The taco shell and tostadas were a little too hard for my liking, but all in all great flavor.
