The Chicken enchilada Suiza was very good but too much for one person. The ruffina tamales were horrible. The pork had a miserable taste. Retried beans were good. Service was fair. You have to stand in line to order. There is limited choice of bottled...More

Locals put up with the crummy service at make-shift register because food is authentic, fresh and delicious.

Stopped by for lunch and got the enchiladas and fish tacos. Both were very good...the fish tacos could’ve used something else on them (sauce and flavor wise) but we’re still very good.

They sell bottled beer but do not have a bar. This place is very very casual. Food is ordered at a counter and then once prepared is delivered to your table. They have the best guacamole and chips I've ever eaten.
