The food is ok, but make sure you ask for tap water, otherwise, they'll automatically bring you bottled water and you will be charged for it. Service was slow. Staff doesn't seem to last there long.

Super friendly waitstaff, reasonably priced and delicious food. I ordered the chicken fajitas (in photo) and they did not disappoint. Hubby ordered the sopapillas and he recommends getting the shredded beef. New favorite place in Silver City.
