Walked over to the nearby strip mall and ate here. Service was great. We both ordered fajitas and were not disappointed. Large portions. This is where the locals eat.

Just a ma n pop style restaurant, but the best ever. Traditional northern new mexico food. No twists on the chiles, no twists on anything. We love coming here. Great menudo!
