Went for lunch today and was totally unimpressed. Of the four orders none of the food was physically hot, merely tepid. The green chili sauce used to "smother" was really bland and gloppy looking--smothering cost extra, a fact not mentioned by the waitress when she asked if we wanted it that way.

We tried this place on sort of a lark, after our son said “friends” had recommended it. I should have been a little suspicious when we walked in at 6 PM on a Friday night and found ourselves the only customers there. Others did eventually filter in but the place was never busy at all.

The food was very good and fresh since it was all prepared after we arrived. The burritos and enchiladas were both very good and very reasonably priced. Don't judge this yummy place from College Ave., you have to taste it to appreciate it.

Second time i have been here. This time I ordered the green chili plate with beef, beens and rice and a couple tortillas. Service was good and food came quickly. Not the absolute best green chili I have ever had but I thought it was pretty solid. Looking forward to my next visit.

This is a good Authentic Mexican Restaurant, not fancy But very good good. We like to go here for the Margaritas and Nachos. They have regular specials and we always get a warm welcome. It looks small from the outside but is nice inside. Worth the effort for the good food.

Great Mexican food. Family owned, and good service. Make sure to be there on the days they have the sopapillas!! Like I said hometown restaurant, not some corporate plastic feel. Try the different sauces

The atmosphere is inviting, cozy and makes you feel like family. Family owned and operated serving traditional Mexican food. The Pacho Machos are delicious! The refried beans are freshly ground. Prices are also very affordable!

The worst food I have ever tried to eat. We left without eating more then a few bites, but still paid the 82 dollars for the experience. The food taste like the building looks.
