Ordered typical Mexican plates they were very good slightly pricey but the service was good. Location is next to the railroad tracks. Parkinn lot was in an angle not much area to park, extra parking in the rear.

I had asado de puerco which was as good as my mother used to make. They have a food share of Tex-Mex dishes, but they always have some very authentic Mexican meals.Not expensive especially if you order from their specials menu. The Asado de Puerco was on their special menu on a Friday night.

Nice quite restaurant Definitely a place to relax and enjoy a good meal. Our server was great, beer came full dressed and the strawberry margarita had wonderful frozen fruits, a treat and nice surprise. Upon ordering the waiter was good with my husband dinner platter, but when it came to my order he suggested another option. What a great suggestion... More

We decided to try this restaurant a while back, not really sure whether we would like it or not. To our surprise it was not bad. There was not wait for a table, the service was quick and the plates are made to order. We have tried their breakfast, family has tried lunch and all has been good.

I had the chicharron plate, it was very good, of it wasn't for the coffee or had been perfect, I think they should change their coffee brand, very clean place. I recommend it.
