Went for "dinner" (sometime in the evening), but ended up getting the breakfast burritos and was pretty happy with that decision. The breakfast burritos are pretty substantial for $3-$4 a pop, and they're really tasty. The service was a little lackluster, in that I feel...More

I grew up in New Mexico and was really looking forward to eating here. The only thing New Mexican about this place was the stacked enchilada and their green chiles. I had fajitas that were pretty bland. My wife had a rellenos that she said...More
