The first place I had to go when visiting FM in over fifteen years and it's just as amazing as I remember! The cheese enchiladas are the best I've ever had 😋

The food is ok. The best thing I found on the menu are the homemade flour taco chips. The restaurant is very dated and is a cash only restaurant

I have friends that will drive an hour to eat here. It is the standard by which other Mexican Restaurants should be judged.
