I love this restaurant food so much. It's a very authentic mexican restaurant with very tasty food. I love their pork chile verde, it's spicy but very tasty. Love to go there repeatedly. I love their burritos, pork chili verde, enchiladas, egg dishes.

Blanketed with cheap melted cheese, my enchiladas were third rate at this for-some-reason popular place. Diner-like atmosphere.
