Place looks like nothing from outside, inside it's nicely decorated. Food is excellent. Service is friendly. You might even make new friends, being the place is so small, you might share table with strangers.

I was new to Laredo and looking for authentic Mexican food close to my hotel. This is a small family run restaurant that is only open for lunch. The menu is simple, but has enough choices for everybody. I had the Chile Rellenos made with Chiles Chilacas, which was a first for me. I also had the Cilantro Soup, which was very good. I was also given a sample of the Poblano Soup, which I liked even better. To drink, I had fresh lemonade, which was very good as well. This place is 100% authentic and quaint. The decor has some local art and is very cozy. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Best of all, it cost half of what a similar meal in the hotel restaurant cost two nights before. A great meal and a great experience.

I was directed to this nondescript little restaurant in old town Laredo and walked into a bustling family owned local favorite with a unique menu, delicious fare, and the most hospitable service despite the line that was beginning to form. Delicious salsa with chips to start and then opted for the chicken with mole served with rice and beans and warm tortillas to sop up every last morsel--perfect lunch portions with incredible flavor and very reasonable prices. No oversized portions of average Mexican cuisine- quality is the mantra here.
