This is a family run cheap New Mexican restaurant open Monday to Friday 11.00am until 7.45pm only. No reservations taken and cash only payment. If you can handle this then you will enjoy typical home made family New Mexican food. Always full so be prepared...More

Had chili rellenos. They were great. the Sopas are to die for. We brought home a dozen for breakfast. It is out of the way but is well worth looking for. Its a local hangout and you could tell they came in continually.
