El Sureno does not look like much from the outside. Heck, it does not look like much from the inside. But for $6 at lunch, the chicken fajitas are an amazing value and meal. Really good salsa and chips top off the meal. The service on this day was great.

It's a small little restaurant tucked into this strip of varied stores (including a SubWay) with nothing fancy about the interior as well. Please do not let looks fool you! This is one of my favorite little Mexican restaurants. I have eaten... More
