Unpretentious and friendly, local and efficient service, and good tasty home-style mexican food, menudo, rancho huevos, warm with chatter and neighbourhood customers, wandering streeetsingers, just great! To me this is quintessential El Paso.

Had the Mexican plate. Really good Chile rellno and tacos. Enchiladas I did not care for. Some of the best Salsa I have had. I actually bought some to go it was that good. It's got a bite.

The breakfast was great, I really loved the hash browns and the coffee was perfect. My server was very nice at 3:00am. I had to fly out of El Paso at 6:30am so this place is a perfect little stop.

It is a small little place but cozy and the food is made right there in front of you. I like the menudo and the beef tacos are great. It has been in the same location since I was a child.
