Girlfriend and I decided to try this place out after we took an unintentional detour in Sturgeon Bay. On our way to upper Door Country we got stuck in a snow storm. This place was about 3 blocks from the AmericInn where we stayed.It's easy to miss as it's only a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant crammed into in a strip mall between a tax place and some other random business.
I've found when it comes to ethnic food, these are usually the best places and when you walk in and see grandma and two toddlers playing in the dining room, you know you're getting the real deal. Though the decoration is pretty spartan and has more of a cafeteria feel than a real restaurant, it was warm and inviting and the staff was very friendly. The sounds of football (soccer) and Mariachi music coming from the kitchen certainly cement that idea.
I had the lunch special: two beef enchiladas, rice and beans and my girlfriend had the enchiladas with asada. Food was delivered hot and fresh, though I am assuming this was more due to the fact that we were literally, the only customers. Either way it was ever bit as authentic and delicious as I remember any Mexican food being.
The rice was soft, slightly sticky and smelled wonderfully of tomatoes, pepper and chile. The beans were moist and smooth without being runny or watery and had that amazing earthy flavor and texture that only comes from properly cooked beans - nothing from a can at this place! The enchiladas were the best part though. Nicely spiced, well cooked meat with that lovely bland but spicy corn tortilla and sauce. Washed down with a Jarritos, you could be forgiven for thinking you'd just stepped up to a Tijuana food stand, if not for the snow drifting up against the windows.
This place was awesome and it's definitely worth a visit, and probably a return visit from us on our way through to northern door county. Lunch for two people was $25 with tip and for this flavor at that price can't be beaten.
