We ate here twice in the 6 days we stayed in the area. Good food, prices and service. Get here early as it's small, or order take out. The front door is in a walking plaza so parking is a little odd.

was looking for a 'good Mexican eatery' with outdoor dining, but all the locals recommended Los Nopales (no outdoor seating). As the other reviewers say, it's not fancy, but the service was good, the beer was cold, and the food was good.

The food was very good but this is not the place for a formal dinner. They have cafeteria style tables. If you like good dives, this is a good place to go.

I did not see pizza on the menu. This is a Mexican food restaurant so I doubt it. They do have take out though.
