One of us had enchiladas with an excellent mole sauce, one had chile rellenos. Generous and tasty plates of each. Sides of refried beans were a bit soupy but delicious. On a week night, not too crowded and meals were served hot with little wait.

The place was pretty quiet on a weekend afternoon. Came in during lunch hours. It took an hour to get our food. Almost another hour to get our check. Food was only mediocre. I've been in the restaurant industry for decades. I would not come...More

This is a real Mexican restaurant- family run, home made food, friendly service. We've been going for nearly 20 years. Every time it's a good value: lots of tasty food at a moderate price, washed down with beer, sangria or fruit drinks. Tonight it was...More
