We stopped by for dinner in early January to find the restaurant is closed. Not only closed, but empty. The same is true for the next door bar and the bar-b-que restaurant next to that. Since the three places were owned in common, it is...More

Change is hard. The salsa here is the same, and the chips taste stale, same as always. But there is no peasant plate on the menu. We always ordered it: me pork, husband chicken. On to what we did order. My cheese enchilada (red sauce)...More

I have been to this restaurant dozens of times, over the years, and have never been disappointed. I've gotten to the point that I can tell the difference about who made the salsa that day; one employee makes it slightly more liquid. But either way...More

Stopped here for a casual lunch. Ate in the bar to appease the appetites of the party. Bbq sandwich for one and chicken chimi for the other. Both were excellent and served with ample sides and left-overs for later. Service was exceptionally friendly and food...More
