Not open any more after many years. Sad that the site is vacant, but true. Their enchiladas had many fans.

I had the chicken tamales - nice, soft dough and lots of meat. emjoyed having the option of regular pintos instead of the ubiquitous retried beans. Ample portions.

I have had their tamales since I was a kid. Traditional Mexican food. Nothing spectacular but it's filling. Wish they would stay open later, they close early, around 8-8:30 pm so get there early.

Old restaurant located in a classic building in downtown. The food is awesome and we enjoy the service from Lilly. She is very attentive as we visit frequently.
