As a local I really hate to share this information with you because the lines at Efrains are long enough already. Nevertheless, Efrains is a no frills authentic Mexican Restaurant that doesn't attract many tourists due to the fact that it's not located in the...More

Very authentic Mexican food with tasty Margs. There is usually a little bit of a wait on the weekends but it's worth it. The chips and salsa are delicious, the green chile is incredible, and if you have the guts, the spiciest salsa is great,...More
