Typical hole in the wall bar and restaurant with decent food served in large portions. I had a deluxe tostada with chicken and my friend had a stuffed sopapilla. Good service

This a family restaurant & run by a Mexican family. When going Mexican, this is my favorite place! The restaurant serves authentic Mexican food with a smile. It is very clean & decorated with items from Mexico, such somberos, dresses. etc.
