Lunch time. Portion size adequate. Server ask if they could take our plates. We were finished with the lunch but not the sopapilla. They took everything before we could say anything. There was 4 people waiting and we were at a table for two.

The food was good, but not amazing for my taste. The atmosphere was pleasant and the staff was friendly and helpful. I may return for a second try, but I just won’t rush to get there.

Despite an hour wait, the food was definitely worth it! I had the blue corn enchiladas which were outstanding. The only thing I’d like to see change is their lack of decent drinks. A margarita would have perfect with this meal.

The Stuffed Sopapilla was VERY tasty, and I was amazed at the reasonable prices on the menu. We were there on a Friday evening, and there was a gentleman playing live music throughout dinner. The "wine margarita" they served was a delightful variation on tradition....More
