Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 March 2012

Sent here by Hoiliday Inn desk person as best real Mexican food around.
They have plastic chairs and basic tables. The food was very good basic Mexican food. The only thing that was disappointing was the Guacamole; it was too full of tomato and onion not enough avocado.
I had a Chili Relano and combo plate with tamale and a cheese and onion enchilada. All were very good. My buddy JoeDon had shrimp enchiladas and said that they were better than the ones at one of the best Mexican places I go to.
Beer and basic wine only
The salsa was very good though Marsha, my wife could not eat it, too hot for her but she is not in tune with Hot.
I don’t know the other local places so I can’t compare. JoeDon (another coast to coast traveler) and I would both come back here to try other things. I suspect there are other fancier places in town but we sure were able to stretch the old expense account here. Again nothing special but very good basic food. Also good service.
