Near to and recommended by the hotel. Excellent fresh, crisp hot chips. Sweet tasty salsa. Had the mixed fajitas. Served on a plate, not a skillet as one comes to expect. Very tender, well seasoned meat. Guacamole good.

Nothing Tex Mex or central or south American... Strictly north America-mexico. Good, genuine Mexican food with a welcoming environment for family dining and small town appeal

We walked over from the hotel next door. Wow! It was really good and fresh. The guacamole was wonderful as was the queso. Salsa and chips were spot on. Everyone ordered something different and we were all very pleased. Portions are large, we went home...More

Ate dinner here with kids while staying next door at Holiday Inn Express. Food was served hot and tasted good. Had enchiladas, tacos, and tamales. Charro beans were very good. Service was friendly. Was recommended by hotel staff as best in town. Agree with them!!
