Very small restaurant but the entrees are absolutely delicious and the prices are very reasonable. Tamales are really tasty. Service is quick and I can't recommend this place enough. If you're in Cortez, stop in and give it a try.

This restaurant was recommended by Jaime at Best Western and it certainly lived up to it! It was a Saturday night and very busy, but the service was good and the food was fantastic. We would certainly go there again!
