We love dining at this restaurant. The service is always friendly and fast. The Enchiladas are authentic flat style and the sopapillas are as big as your face. Make sure to save room for dessert.

Have been to the area a couple of times first time eating here and so far me and my family enjoyed the steaks, cooked perfectly and the seasoning just on point. Will definitely be coming back..

Entered restaurant lobby, waited, waited, waited. Walked out almost ten minutes later. Never greeted. Never recognized. Feared that at that rate a meal might take two hours - no telling.

Service was very fast and friendly. Chips and salsa came with the meal and the salsa was pretty good. I had the chicken chimichanga. The chimi was wonderful. I would very much recommend this restaurant

I’ve been up and down Interstate 25 on business for the past two weeks. I speak professionally and provide customer service training. I just spent 5 years living in Germany and I’m so glad to be in the heart of amazing Southwest traditional faire. I...More
