We plugged in our gps for Alfonso's and it kept bringing us to a gas station so it was hard to find. Fast food counter with a few seats. I found the food average.

Crappy gas station location. Just a couple of tables. But they really do nice work here. If youre looking for mex food in this area try this place. It aint pretty but the food is great. Look for the tupperware bowl full of griddled peppers....More

Awesome! We always stop in here on our way down to Santa Fe. Tacos are so good. We get the number 3 and split it!

It's small and run down. Food is below average. Friendly service. Lots of parking. I do not recommend eating here

Really enjoyed their Fish Tacos and Horchata. Quick service and well prepared. It is in a gas station so its a no frills dining area. Wide selection of choices on the menu.

We dined at this location, as all others were closed on a Sunday night. The fajitas were typically tasty and made with healthy fresh ingredients. The catfish (not so regional) was so-so. What makes the restaurant remarkable is the service. Out waiter checked in with...More
