Excellent food, service, atmosphere. Guacamole is outstanding, and pretty - not the green mush you typically get. Chile negro is off the hook delicious but if you come in and try any of the specials, whether it be the fajitas, tinga, or fish tacos, you will me more than satisfied. Chips and salsa are homemade and fresh, and they also offer a variety of special blend salsas to sample too. Portions are plenty but not a platter of food big enough to feed a small village. They don't microwave the crap out of your food, made fresh when you order it. And it's not buried in a pile of cheese. In other words, you don't hear "hot plate" when your food arrives. Their food stands out on its own and it's as authentic as you're going to get for miles. Family owned, service is pleasant and attentive. We've been here several times now and leave happy and full every time. Come try this place!!
