“We are (many time) repeat customers. The staff are friendly, the owner greets patrons, but best of all the food is always fresh (not thawed) and prepared onsite. We love the fresh poblano peppers, and the verde tomatilla salsa. The menu features most standards, but some of the house specialties are well worth an experiement.”

“This is my "go to" spot for Mexican food. These folks make some really great food with authentic flavors. Yes they have the standard Americanized Mexican food, but it's really well done.
Try the chilie Colorado, the red sauce is great! It's not the standard tomato sauce with cumin. It's made with chilies, you can tell. The salsa is great too. I've had lots off the menu and it's all great. The refried beans have something in hem that I can't quite put my finger on and they are super good!”
