Pleasant spot to eat lunch or dinner. Across Rio Grande from Old Town, which may necessitate walking to the corner to cross, but worth it. The salsa is wonderful and the enchiladas are great,. The food over the years has ben consistent and wonderful.

I'm a New Mexico native so when I come back home this is my first stop. Hands down this is the best New Mexican food in town. I've been eating here for years.

Wanted to try authentic (i.e. non-touristy) New Mexican food, selected this restaurant based on reviews from Yelp. Love the margarita, tried both red and green chili (the green is way hot) but it was all very good. Great service and reasonable prices.

The staff was excellent and seated our group quickly. Our orders were prepared and all served quickly. The food ran from average to very good, depending on what was ordered. But all in all quite satisfactory. The location is close to old town AND has ample parking, which is worth points!
