“Everything is Fresh and Homemade!”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

What a find. There are at least 3 other area family owned Mexican restaurants in the area that do not live up to this restaurant.
I went for dinner here, not knowing what to expect as many restaurants here offer the cuisine of Puebla, which has now gotten old. The family here is from Oaxaca, which is a nice change, but the cuisine is Mexico City, a refreshing change. Keep in mind that Oaxaca is ground zero for Mexican cuisine, as many tv shows indicate.
I started with a drink called Jamaica (ha-mike-ah) which is boiled down flower petals and is really too tart to drink unless sugar is added. This and other drinks are available as mixes, but it is made fresh here..and not so sweet. I've had it in Mexico and it was too sweet. Very impressive!
I then ordered tongue tacos, a first for me, which tasted like any other grilled meat, but softer, very good then Bistec a la Mexicana for the entree, which is slices of beef sauteed with onions, tomatoes and jalapenos with of course, refried beans and rice. All very good.
Between the smells as soon as you walk in, to the large pots filled with the ingredients for your meal, you will feel like you're in any market or small restaurant in Mexico. Everything on the menu is FRESH and homemade. The restaurant is located on the south side of Rt. 46 across from a small park.
