This place is off the chain good! Very authentic and oh so tasty! Be ready to wait if you go on the weekends. Yeh, it's that good! The tamales are my favorite along with the chimichanga.

Impromptu dinner while in Norman. The food was really good and plentiful. Great service. Not the greatest ambiance, but definitely will visit again.

Slightly pricey for Tex-Mex, but good quality and quantity! Friday night, 1/2 hour wait for party of 4. Broad menu. Something for everyone, even gringo children.
