One of my favorite places to eat in town and come regularly. Love the fideo and almost everything. I will say the chicken enchiladas are a little dry, but other than that all the food is great!

Go here a bit. Small remodled house. Good consistent staff. Good consistently tasting food. Chips and salsa are tasty. Enchiladas are a must. Menudo on the weekends is a treat. A local favorite.
