A tiny little restaurant in a nondescript strip center would not attract many patrons, but this place is buzzing even during the off season. Don't you wonder why? We went there years ago with a buy one get one free coupon that was pure serendipity. As we entered Ruben came out and welcomed us. He explained that if we did not see anything on the menu that appealed to us, just tell him what we wanted and he'd prepare it. Not only that, but he went on to explain that if we did not like it, there would be no charge. How's that for putting a customer at ease?
Their forte is New Mexican style Mexican. I can't describe it any better than that but his dishes will make your taste buds do the happy dance. We take our best friends there and they all return on their own. The meals are delicious, the prices are fair, the atmosphere is cozy, the service is superb, and the place is usually filled. Pardon Ruben if he's too busy to come out and greet you, but he'll be performing his magic in his tiny kitchen with this wife. This little mom 'n pop restaurant is a genuine treasure.
P.S. Tell Rubin or your server that this is your first visit and Rod sent you and you'll get a free desert :-)
