Just a quaint little diner bursting with authentic Mexican food. If you like Mexican food you will not be disapointed.

Local family owned and Operated - with the family recipes still being used - no fast food here - but real Mexican food - made with love. Family works in the restaurant and are friendly and welcoming. Their salsa and their guacamole are the best!

Real Mexican food prepared with love by people who know what great Mexican food is. Servers sometimes have language barrier but if you point to the menu you get GREAT food. Don't be alarmed by the outside. It is a small family place in a small business area.

I had the chicken enchiladas as shown below and asked if they had red or green chile to add on and that wasn't really an option. Guess they haven't... More

This was the worst mexican food I have had in my life! I am not a picky eater but this place was really unacceptable! I ordered enchiladas and they were very obviously made in a microwave, the tortillas were chewy and the sauce on top had turned into a paste from the microwave. It was so bad I couldn't even...
