I make it a point to come here every time I'm in Rio Rancho. You really can't go wrong with anything on their menu, it's all fabulous. My favorite dish is the chicken & guacamole tacos.

Have eaten here several times over the past year. Love all of their food, but especially the stuffed sopapillas. The burritos and tacos are also excellent, with either red sauce, green sauce, or a combination of both. Lots of great choices.

This place has very good food; however, they don’t serve any alcohol so you can’t enjoy a nice cold one with your meal. I would go more often if they did because like I said the food and service is very good

Spotted this while driving down the highway. It appeared to be family owned/operated which is a pleasant change from the usual. It was very busy and catered to both dine-in and takeout. We were seated in about 5 minutes. Food selection was South Western/Mexican. Our...More
