We have driven by this place on 4th Street in ABQ for many years without even thinking of stopping there. We were very happy that we stopped to eat there today! We had explored a large pawn shop nearby, so I searched "Near Me Now"...More

Great authentic mexican food and absolutely wonderful service. The owner checks on your food himself! Coudn't ask for better treatment. This place is about 2 minutes off of I-40. Hightly recommended for travelers who miss good homemade food!

Very casual place that serves reasonably priced food. We had tasty green chile stew with flour tortillas (medium size about $5.50) and a gigantic breakfast burrito for about $6.50. Everything was very good and filling. Easy free street parking.

The building and area don't look likely for excellent food, but don't judge the book by the cover. I had the pork enchiladas and they were the best I've ever tasted, and I've eaten a lot of enchiladas. My wife tried the combination plate and...More

Massive, dirt cheap menu. A la carte items are under two bucks, including amazing tamales. I had one and a chorizo burrito and did not eat dinner (I'm a fairly large man).
