We had excellent food and service from Ricarda herself. My husband had the carne asada burrito and I had the combo plate with cheese enchilada, chili relleno and crispy steak taco. Everything was very tasty and service was perfect.

The food was original and good. We spent time talking with the owner. A real family operation. It is off the beaten path but well worth the trip.
