Great New Mexican food in a sweet little restaurant. The Carne was amazing! Tender, nicely seasoned morsels of pork and red chile. The burrito with pinto beans was nothing special. It would have been better with more green chile, which had great New Mexican flavor....More

I eat here often because it's great value, the food is excellent, and the service is attentive but not overwhelming. I can't eat peppers, so when I get the fajitas, the waitress always suggests sub'ing other veggies for the peppers. Little bit of a hike...More
