This is an authentic little hole-in-the-wall. The food is very good and prices right. You can get a Coke bottled in Mexico or a bottle of beer with your meal.

Don't go expecting a great atmosphere. Very small, it's a family-owned and operated place. But the food is very good and authentic. Great place for lunch.
