This is a family-owned restaurant and everyone treats you accordingly - like family, and that is service with a smile. My favorite is the #13 Combo (1-Taco, 1-Chili Relleno and 1-Enchilada), and...

Another great find on my phone app. Great Mexican food., limited drink menu (alcohol) very reasonable prices, great service. Never a wait for a table. Great out of the beaten path joint.
