The place was nice. Very good food and great service. We were there in December, and it was freezing. We have to wait for a very long time outside close to a wood fire, but the food was very good.

Best guac of our NM trip. Zucchini enchiladas to die for - veggies still crisp but cooked, green and red sauces delish. Fish tacos - excellent! Quick service. Slightly above "hole-in-the-wall", but cosy and authentic! A short drive out of town. GO GO GO!!!

Just ate there two nights ago. We were all excited since this little place had lots of really good reviews. We were sadly, sadly disappointed. Food was very bland, no taste to anything at all. Only wine and beer so no margaritas. You have to...More
