I have friends who drive from Raleigh to eat here. Of course I get to live less than 1 mile from the place, but folks do seem to come from all over to eat here.
A run down building where you get to wait in line to eat on concrete floors with few amenities. So what? I'm just here for the food. Be prepared to wait; they typically only seat about 13 people at a time.
Maybe it's the adobo sauce they make from scratch, or their own mole sauce, or the queso, or the chili colorado, or any of a number of items that I've eaten or have had described to me as being favorites. But the real killer for me is the vegetable soup, marketed as tortilla soup but you could leave out the tortillas and the cheese and I'd be just as happy if not happier. In fact, i ask them to do just that for me.
Go in on a cooler day for lunch when the tables are full; half of them have the soup. It's chockful of a variety of vegetables and the broth is everything you'd want a broth to be. Oh, and don't forget to try their red or green tomatillo hot sauces while you're there. That stuff could be bottled and sold retail even in the saturated market that is hot sauces.
