Ordered the Tuesday special. Flautas just ok, beans gummy and cool, rice was tasteless. Gal at the counter overcharged us, said the drinks were 2.30 when the menu said 1.90. And then charged us for 3...won't go back.

High priced average food. My wife is a better cook. I went to the one in the valley and it was lousy.

I'm fairly new to New Mexico. I was with two friends who have lived their lives here (45 - 55 yrs.) It was so delicious even if I got a giggle for getting toast (wheat instead of tortillas) and for putting catchup on my potatoes...More
