Stopped in on a referral from a local resident as I was looking for Mexican food. I almost cried when I was getting too full to eat any more because it tasted so good. The warmed leftovers were a tantalizing treat. Best I ever had!

I stopped in here for dinner this week while passing through town. It had been several years since I’d last dined in this place, and I did enjoy my visit. It is not a huge restaurant inside, and the “authentic Mexican décor” is pretty canned,...More
