Adeline has owned Wondervu Cafe for 40 years. The recipes are ones she inherited from her mother and grandmother. I have never had anything here that was not absolutely incredible! Her margarita menu is great too. The chile rellenos are my favorite; try them with...More

We are big eaters and this really was a ton of food. Homemade slasas ("chili") were all excellent. We heard that Desserts are wonderful but never got that far.

The food was good and the outdoor seating was nice. The service was a little slow but that may have been because it was rather busy when we were there.

We enjoyed our marqaritas and Fajitas. This was good Mexican and my only complaint was that there was more food than I could eat.

Wow, Yelp reviews warned us about the prices, so we ordered cheap--steak sandwich & fries, & veggie burger w the tiniest cup of soup I've ever had. Nice servers. The Mexican food looked good but WAy overpriced

Outstanding Mexican cuisine. Make their own salsa, that's also out of this world. AND they make their own chocolates! Handcrafted chocolate bon bons of all sorts.... to die for! The view is amazing and the patio is very pleasant when the weather's nice.

We were staying at the nearby Eldora Lodge and stopped here one evening for dinner. Some of the best Mexican food I've had in ages. The staff was very friendly and it was a relaxed, casual place to eat dinner.
