Today was the first time I visited and it wasn't bad. We got a to go order, so were not sure what we'd be up against. The restaurant was clean and the staff were friendly. The green chile was tasty and the food nice and hot when we got it home. Our order was missing an item and, when I... More

Consistently good Mexican food. Nice that is all not smothered in cheese and sour cream like most of the americanized mexican places around. Eaten here for over 10 years, always a favorite

This is a family run and owned place and the mother is the menu creator. I had a combo plate of chile relleno, burrito and enchilada. All were tasty and the temperature was hot (this is good). Son had a burrito plate and enjoyed that dish. This is our first time here and plan to come back.

Food is good but in the past couple of months every to go order we got was wrong. Seems like either the waitresses don't order correctly or the cooks don't pay attention. Even eating there our orders have been wrong.

Not too bad but not too great. Service is ok and food isn't too bad. Just not very flavorful or exciting.... Maybe a bit to much salt in the chili

Family run, friendly, good food, good price. Since this is friendly local neighborhood restaurant, you'll likely run into few of your neighbors sitting next table to you.

Best place I've found since leaving SoCal. The smothered burritos are very good and the breakfast burritos are great. Nice friendly servers and good food.
