We won't go there anymore. The food is good, but the staff treat people like crap and act like they have no interest in being there, like you're bothering them. The staff have their favorite customers, but if you're an out-of-towner, forget it.

Nice little place that serves half between fast, half restaurant style Mexican food. They had student specials so that comes in handy.

Most of my reviews are for folks who have a limited budget, like me, but want good food and inexpensive mini-vacations. This little dive is a good place to enjoy beans, rice and a delicious burrito on a budget. The burrito was jam packed with shredded beef, I couldn't eat it all I had to ask for a to go... More

If you're on the way to dig at the paleo site 15mins down the road & want to grab something filling to go that the kids will like & don't want DQ or Wendy's, this is a good bet. I liked the breakfast burrito with chorizo & potatoes. My oldest son said the beef burrito was good but a bit... More

This is a old school cafeteria type place. Everything looks and tastes homemade. Nothing fancy here. Solid food and good prices. It's dinner on Styrofoam. Sauces and shredded beef were spot on in enchiladas. There wasn't much in the cheese department. I would ask for extra sauce the next time. Service,was quick and friendly

We tried this joint as it was highly rated, we tried the carne asada torta and green chili burrito, both were very good, also ordered a side of fries, you get one potatoe worth of fires for a $1.50, and limp and stale, save your money on the fires. Place looks very run down and sitting area tables are bent... More

Had the Carne Asada plate one day and the Menudo another. The Carne Asada have generous filets of meat. It was tough and chewy and he seasoning was pretty plain. I like the rice and refried beans. The rice was fluffy and seasoned just right and the refried beans tasted fresh with just enough cheese on top. The Menudo is... More
