Fajitas & mole were the best we've ever had after multiple SW & Mexico visits. Unassuming small restaurant with great fast service. Would go back again & again if we lived closer.

The owner of our inn recommended this restaurant and I am glad she did. The food and service were great. We had the fajita combo and it was more than we could eat. Delicious. My husband especially enjoyed his Dos Equis Amber.

This place came recommended by our hotel, and now I know why! Small place, but great service and great food. There's really not much more I can say that won't be redundant. It's a wonderful spot that's on the edge of town. If you get...More
