Located right on the main square, this is a cozy Mexican restaurant. I went there for breakfast on the advice of someone local. Great food, good salsa, friendly service, and very reasonable prices.

This is a place I frequently visit, Caldo de res is awesome! the luch specials are great! Flautas are good too. One of the best chips and salsa in El Paso. What I like here is the food tastes like home made, very traditional.
