Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 October 2017

This is a home style Mexican food restaurant. Plenty of it and it won't break the bank. Kind of a grab and go type of eatery. There are tables to dine in, but they are limited. The food is tasty and plenty of condiments to top it, to make it the way you want it. A good grab and roll type of food when passing through Espanola, NM. It's a little tricky to identify and find, but worth the time to locate.

That may not be true - haven't tried them all, but it is hands-down the best I've had in New Mexico (among the best I've had anywhere). Just about everyone that I've taken there agrees. Authentic Mexican. The enchiladas verdes de queso are incredible.

I never write reviews, but this place blew my mind. The service is amazing, and the food is even better. My traveling group of four were heading for Taos from Santa Fe and needed a quick lunch. We found this place on Google Maps. Totally random, and SO worth it. We sampled seven of the menu items and all were amazing. Would return in a heartbeat. Burritos, tacos, flats, enchiladas were all fantastic.

When directions to a Mexican restaurant start with go to the Pizza Hut parking lot, you know you're not headed to some national chain restaurant. There is a small little building that sits at the back of the parking lot. You don't go for the ambiance, but the food was delicious. Don't shy away from the tongue tacos, they were wonderful!
