Incredible green chili enchiladas! The hot sauce is fresh and awesome! Queso is the best and chips are very fresh!

This is truly an original Mexican restaurant! The atmosphere is great, and the service is very good. It seems like a place to locals frequently and with good reason. Parking is about a half a block away or on street if you can find a spot. The food is served quickly, the menu is typical and the food was great.

This long-established restaurant has a well-deserved reputation for good Tex-Mex and other Mexican dishes. We had lunch there and were very pleased. The shrimp, chicken, and beef fajitas were very good. The others with me also enjoyed their dishes.

The salsa was too runny and spicy. I got Della’s plate...nothing special. Rice, beans, enchilada and taco was just okay. Hubby got Menudo and was good. Sons taco salad was big and not too bad. Margarita was water downed and too much ice. Service was great!

Took a 2 day excursion to get to the beach area for some mental clarity. Stopped in the Original Mexican Cafe to try it out. Food was great! Mole chicken enchiladas were delicious! My daughter absolutely loved the kids chicken crunchy taco and ate it all! This is HUGE for her!!! Recommended by my dad who also joined us and enjoyed his food as well. Price was reasonable. Easy access for wheel chairs too.
