Will make it a priority to visit this restaurant again. We ate here on a Friday evening about 6 pm, an hour before closing and not too crowded. Excellent food! Husband said it was the best chile relleno he ever had.

I read all the reviews and there was only one negative, which I dismissed as being the competition. Boy was I wrong and that person right! My husband's green Chile was almost meatless, tiny chips of meat, like you get in canned soup. He thought...More

Great Mexican food, super friendly service, convenient location if you're travelling route 66. My only caveat was we couldn't bring our dogs inside (it was 106 outside the day we were driving through) but they accomodated us by making our burritos quickly so we could...More
