This little restaurant is a rare find. Everything made fresh to order! Even the rice is not pre-made, but cooked daily fresh. They do not even own a Microwave! Try the Gorditas or their Green Chile Burger - best I had in a long time!

Not the type of Mexican Food that I am use to too, and we found the portions to be small. The food was not even hot with heat. We will not go back. If you like green chile sauce made with a type of cream soup then you might like this restaurant.

Good food and nice people. I had green chili chicken enchiladas. The green sauce was good but different from what I used to in Northern New Mexico, must be some Tex-mex style. Salsa and chips were very good. Worth a try.
