I had the chile relleno, a stuffed pepper. It was tough, and the breading was not very good. My wife had a steak with avocados, rice, and beans. She said it was good. The chips were greasy. Beer is not served.

This pretty and small storefront place combines a restaurant with a small selection of grocery items and a very well-stocked bakery. We had the excellent chile relleno, a spicy poblano pepper lightly egg battered in a delicious green sauce, most likely a tomatillo sauce. It...More

The salsa was very good. Fresh tomatoes enhanced it nicely. Excellent guacamole, full of flavor. It seems this is a Mexican Restaurant / Pastry Shop. We got pastries to go and they were really nice and flaky. All food I saw was plated nicely. I...More

We go to Mexico often and other than the strip mall location, we felt as though we were there again. Another good indication was the fact that there were a number of Hispanics in attendance. I enjoyed the tamales with a very good masa. My...More

Excellent, flavorful food! It is a small restaurant in a strip mall so not the best place for big parties but the food is crazy tasty. Pretty spicy, which we love, but if you don't like your Mexican food spicy it may not be for...More
