We went tonight for the first time and it was great! I had the tommy bowl and the hubby had the burrito. The staff was exceptional too! We were greeted when we walked in and the menu items were explained with recommendations.

The tamales were fresh, but unfortunately so incredibly over the edge salty, they were basically not edible. Tried 3 different versions but all were over the top in sodium. Hopefully, they read reviews and lay off of the salt. Great salsa.

You don't find those three all together much anymore in a restaurant. I've had several different things here, and all have been great. Best little mom & pop place that could hope to find.
