Stopped by twice for takeout at lunchtime. Both times the meal was hot and plentiful. First time I ordered the Chiles Rellanos ($7.50) that features 2 Poblano Peppers stuffed w/delicious beef and cheese with a guacomole salad.

My family and I have utilized both take out and in house dining at this restaurant many times. My wife likes the chimichanga with chicken and we both like the fajitas. My favorite dish is the carne asada. Depending on the day the seating can be a little slow, and the service while friendly could use a little motivation. Friday... More
