Everything was fantastic. Delightful hostess, extremely kind and helpful. And our server Alex was the best. He gave great food and drink advice/tips. Their green Chile was flavorful and HOT. Strawberry milkshake completed our meal. Best ever. Must order.

The green chile is not for beginner's! Breakfast is our favorite, the breakfast tacos with chorizo and chile rellano omlet smothered in green chile are amazing! Best nachos in town too!
