Nice outdoor seating area, our waiter Pepe, was great. The special, which today was chicken fajitas with a pablano sauce involving chocolate, was awesome. Can see why this place has great reviews, adding ours!

We stopped here for lunch on our way home from Santa Fe. Delicious enchiladas and the best chili rellanos we have had in years. Nice staff. Sat outside as inside is small. Great stop!
