Bisteca Ranchera was grilled well prepared with tomatoes, onions and peppers was good for her. My combo plate with a stuffed bell pepper, tamale and enchilada was just “okay”. Margarita on the rocks was acceptable but not noteworthy.

The food tastes like Grandma cooked it. So fresh and tasty, especially the fajitas. The service is top notch, and the atmosphere is very cozy and Latino.Lots of great murals from the Mexican Revolution. They also added patio seating.
