A real sleeper. Authentic Mexican dishes. Great selection and the food was exceptional. A little tough to find but well worth the hunt. Chicken Mole Enchiladas were super.

Went here with friends for lunch. The red chili is outstanding. The food is excellent. It is just home made food that pleases the palate. The combination plates are outstanding. It was good to have good Mexican food again.

The food here has been reliably delicious over the years. It is always clean and the service is excellent. The enchiladas are good and the chips and salsa are some of the best in town.
