Lots of food, the tamales I had were huge! Service was great. There was a 20 minute wait, but the food was definitely worth the wait.

Don't let the first look fool you. Though this is a smaller restaurant, there is plenty of free parking on both sides, a lot of outdoor seating, numerous tables inside, and super fast service with very well accomplished cooking. The beer battered french fries are...More
