The "team" customer service attitude was wonderful. The food was simply delicious. Highly recommend the Carne Adovado enchiladas.

I took my out-of-state colleagues here for lunch. They absolutely loved the authentic New Mexican dishes served here. Everything was fresh, delicious and fairly priced. They can't wait for a return visit.

This place has great food overall but I found the green chile stew to be the best around town. Lots of flavor and just the right amount of heat!
