Famous for their authentic Mexican food this restaurant holds true to their roots. I had chicken enchiladas with rice and refried beans. My business partners had Menudo. Everything was great. Will definitely go again.

Decided to try this place after reading an article about it being a local favorite. It's a small, quaint place but we couldn't eat the overly spicy/hot salsas served with the chips. The food was extra spicy as well. The food was just "ok" -...More
