Enjoyed dinner at the Mexican Food Factory during Christmas break. The restaurant is located in a residential area and I nearly drove right by it. The service was super fast. I had a combo meal which was really tasty and hit the spot. I ordered a side of guacamole which was so-so. It's a bit odd that the chips are... More

We stopped for lunch at this little off the beaten path Mexican restaurant. We placed the order at the front counter and sat in a separate space with Mexican fabric covered tables. It is a very casual dining restaurant, complete with a drive through. The refried bean but toro was great as was the chicken enchilada plate. The Enchalada's plate... More

My wife and I were craving Mexican (food) on the way home from our little vacation. I read some reviews on this place and decided to give it a shot. Trying not to pass judgment based on the name, we went. We won't go again. Its a factory. Found out when we got there that they close super early on... More

We had lunch here for the first time. We were welcomed as we entered by the cook. It is best described as a whole in the wall. Our lunch was great! The beef tamale was large and the Colorado sauce over the rice was excellent. The veggie burrito was big and tasted great. We plan on returning for different menu... More

When people from out of town ask where they can find the best, most authentic Mexican food in town, I always recommend this place. It isn't a fancy restaurant, rather a quaint little place with a variety of great options and beer. I have tried most everything on the menu, and honestly, even just the bean and cheese burrito is...

Very friendly and hospitable service. The owner is very welcoming, very involved. That was nice to see. The food how ever is not true to its roots. Although they cook a lot from scratch, it lacks the spice and flavor prominent to a real Mexican cuisine enthusiast, or a Mexican American for that matter. The sauces were bland and seemed... More

We were fooled by the previous reviews. The best thing to be said about the food is that the service was very friendly. The Special...cheese and bean burrito...seemed to be simply filled with canned re fried beans and grated cheddar cheese. Not much flavor.
