We stopped by for a late lunch after a few hours panning for gold. A cute Victorian house converted into a restaurant, our dog got to sleep on the porch for once, while we filled our hungry bellies.

For a mountain town, the food here is well made although a bit bland, catering to a wider palette. We had the carnita taco(the few things on the menu that are more true to its Mexican flavor), chicken taco (just shredded boiled chicken, a bit bland). The Spanish rice & refried beans were moist & flavorful. The chips were fresh, in both the corn & flour variety... nice touch.

Service was attentive & prompt. Very professional It looks to me that the establishment has the ability to cook more authentic food but is holding back to appeal to the typical customer around here. Maybe offering specials of more authentic dishes every now & then would help them test the boundaries & elevate their repertoire.

A great little gem if you like authentic Mexican food. Not the imitation stuff. This is the real deal. And the prices are cheap. You don't often find Mexican food this good so far north of the border.

Great food, big portions. Nice stuff and quick service. Not too touristy, also natives were eating there. Service was absolutely fine, seems to be a family earned restaurant, atmosphere was super. A very nice place to have good for good prices!

We asked about the restaurant in the hotel , and were told it was a local 's restaurant. We wandered over around 7.30 pm and the place was busy , it was Tuesday! Sat on a window table and service was prompt! The food was tasty, with a good size menu. Portions sensible sizes.
The end of the meal was swift, and service lacked engagement with the customer . Whilst not unfriendly, we felt rushed out, dessert or more drinks were not offered, and the bill arrived very quickly. Covers over service appeared to be the goal!

This restaurant's menu has a "Milenese Filet" shown either in beef or chicken. Since both my wife and I loved this Italian dish on our visit to Italy, She ordered the chicken filet and I the beef. Both were served with beans, rice, and salsa making it a mexican version. It was very good however, it did lack the garlic flavoring that would have made it an excellent representation of a popular and traditional Italian dish;
