“great trout”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We wanted to have trout for dinner. We had learned from our visit to the local Indian Reservation that it was a stable to their diet. coming from the local mountain streams. All the comments are correct. The trout was served with southwest flavor.Very good. We had mango,, ice cream , etc. for dessert. Very unique. Friendly staff. Told us about a place to watch the sunset. Enjoyed our dinner.

“Wonderfully Tiny”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Bottom line: The food is great! True, it's a bit cramped with only 3-4 tables indoors, but the place is family-run, friendly and comfortable. There is also an outside seating area. Had chicken enchiladas with mole sauce. The mole was the best I've had anywhere. Be aware that (unlike most places) it's the red sauce that's the hot one, not the green. I will return.

“Delicious New Mexican Lunch”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We stopped here for lunch based on our fellow Trip Advisors comments and we were not disappointed. There were a few tables on the inside, but it was a bit warm inside, so we opted to sit out on the patio. The enchilada dishes were delicious. We had Christmas (both red and green) sauces and both were yummy. As expected, the outside is a bit run down, but the food makes up for it!

“Great little place”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Doesn't look like much from the outside but it has great food and a nice vibe. There are just a few tables inside and a nice patio outside. There guacamole is great.

“all the great reviews have me puzzled”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

ok food - it has changed hands since we were last there. Used to be a funky little place with great margaritas and new mexican cuisine.
What is offered today is run of the mill fare - burritos, tacos, etc.
good quality food but nothing particularly memorable.
