Had the Mexican plate. Really good Chile rellno and tacos. Enchiladas I did not care for. Some of the best Salsa I have had. I actually bought some to go it was that good. It's got a bite.

The breakfast was great, I really loved the hash browns and the coffee was perfect. My server was very nice at 3:00am. I had to fly out of El Paso at 6:30am so this place is a perfect little stop.

We stopped by to pick up some take out. Place was not so clean. We weren't sure if the cook was paying us any attention because he is the one that you give your order to. He got our order right and they aren't greedy with their food because it was a lot. The food was actually very good.

If you are not a knowledgable local you'll not know about it! The Menudo is one of the best I've found on El Paso!!! Caldo de Rez was great. Prices are more then reasonable. Diner style service. The other night a Car club stopped by for meals! Menu is both Mexican and some American choices. An enjoyable evening.

It is a small little place but cozy and the food is made right there in front of you. I like the menudo and the beef tacos are great. It has been in the same location since I was a child.

I LOVED the Huevos A La Mexicana, the dish was PERFECT and I left very fulfilled, however my husband did not care for the eggs and bacon. He felt the bacon was not cooked enough and the scrambled eggs cooked too much. One downside of an open kitchen is that you can see all...sometimes there are things I do not... More

Trying to start out on a good note, they are open 24/7. Food very up and down, one day had very good deshebrada tacos, the next a very tough bistek torta. The service is good and friendly but it may depend on the grill cook on that particular day. Cheap menu, cash only.
