I've been eating here - off and on - for the past 40 years. It hasn't changed much in that time - neither in the quality of the food (very good,) friendliness and efficiency of the service (very,) or the 60's-70's look of the place. It DOES look like a slightly run-down cantina you might find in Mexico.
I ate here last night and it was - as always - very good.
I was greeted, and then seated in a comfortable booth, within 10 seconds of entering. I was immediately brought thin, warm, tasty chips and fresh salsa. Their regular salsa is not hot, so if you want hotter salsa ask for their "hot" salsa. I usually mix the two together and it makes a perfect salsa for me. [Note: They no longer serve the flour tortilla chips, just corn - for which I'm grateful!]
The waitress was with me within a few minutes. She was also waiting on a large table celebrating a birthday, or she would have been with me sooner.
I ordered a number 8 combo plate of beef burrito, beef taco and chicken enchilada. It goes for $9.79 - $2.00 extra for shredded beef/chicken (which I got.)
It took about 12 minutes for the plate to arrive, and it was HOT. Everything was fresh, everything was very tasty with excellent flavor. The beef was lean and spiced well, as was the chicken (breast meat.) Their rice and beans are above average and very good.
I am 6'5", 230 pounds, and I couldn't finish it all. Had the remaining for lunch today.
This may not be the very best Mexican food you've ever eaten, but unless you are Gordon Ramsey, you'll find it a very enjoyable and authentic Mexican meal in friendly surroundings for reasonable prices.
They have a "Margarita Tuesday" and a "Taco Wednesday," both being excellent at $1.25 each (just recently raised from $.99 - everything's going up in price these days.) The Margaritas are full-sized and NOT watered down. These are regular $5 Margaritas any other day.
That birthday party table were all Hispanics - as are many of the customers here - so if they eat here, you know it's good Mexican fare.
Come and enjoy!
