I come here for the tamales, but all the other things they make look and smell amazing. Small local place, inexpensive and really good homemade salsa's.

Authentic Mexican dishes with variety of options. My favorite is lengua, which was very tender & tasty. The lengua & carnitas taco was delicious. As well as the beef tamale. It's the largest I've eaten so far.
