Great meal once again! Enchilada Suizas are just like started on the menu, unlike any you have had before. Incredible mole, bright favor that is unexpected but delish. Fast, friendly service every time with amazing salsa and chips galore.

Highly recommend. The Pechuga poblano was so good, I went from one part of my plate to the other and I didn’t know where to turn. The flavor explosion was unmanageable. I’m from Texas and have a high expectation and this blew me out of...More
