Went there last night. Waiter was excellent. Food was very good w complimentary chips and salsa. If you order a large nacho you will have plenty enough for two hungry big eaters.

Having lived in NM for 15 years I know both good Mexican food and what's really "hot" chili verde. I ordered a green chili quesodilla and expected a 12 inch tortilla filled with another 12 inch tortilla over it. Not so here. They take a...More

I try not to write negative reviews. But seriously, covered with cheese does not make a dish Mexican. If you are looking for spicy, this is the wrong place. You must have to ask for "8 million peppers" because even the hottest items on the...More
