Visit hampered by small parking lot ( street parking easier!) HOWEVER, the food is as authentic as it gets!. Varied menu offering meals of high caliber and excellent value.

I just ordered a cheese enchilada, and the plate was boiling with cheese and enchilada sauce. As always, I ordered a bowl of Chile Verde. I am not out of line when I say that Efrain’s makes the best Chile Verde. Period! It is spicy...More
