This place has changed hands several times in the last 10 years, they menu is more limited now, so no lengua, the food is good, not dirt cheap but reasonable, generous portions, and the salsa bar is very good. Very friendly people.

Left our motel looking for a nearby place to eat. Found this one, simple looking, but the food was good, and reasonable prices.

Service was great, fast and friendly and the food was good. My burrito was HUGE, the biggest I have ever seen, but it lacked a bit of flavor. There is a nice chips and salsa bar.

Great Mexican food in true "hole in the wall" location. You have to search this place out but will be well rewarded. Carnitas are fantastic, carne asada is excellent. Chicken burrito was our favorite.

The food is great and there's plenty of it! Your typical local hole in the wall joint that sells good food. We try to come every few months.
