This is real Mexican food. We arrived about 11:30 a.m. Sunday morning. By noon every table was taken and we were the only gringos in the place. When you come in they will bring a bowl of tortilla chips and five different kinds of salsa. The orange and red ones are hot and both are good. We both got the bistec a la mexicana and weren't disappointed. Noticed that a lot of the customers were ordering shrimp cocktail so I suspect that is another good choice.

Don't be put off by outside appearance of restaurant...it is hidden gem. The chip/relish tray they serve complimentary is unbelievable...beer glass is Frosted for the Victoria beer that is already ice cold! Food was delicious...reasonable prices...

The food here is great. I love the chips and salsa, when it comes out it has like 5-6 choices with roasted peppers in the middle. Be prepared the menu is all in Spanish, but the waiters can kinda walk you through it. the food is always quick and delicious. the wait staff is friendly, and have always been top notch. The place is nothing fancy but if you want good food come here.

On a short weekend trip to the zoo we happened upon this little gem. Our waitress, though speaking little English, was courteous and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious, nothing pre-packaged here. I had the chicken fajitas, complete with rice, beans, limes, and homemade tortillas. The servings are large and we took plenty home. We will definitely stop by again.

Good variety of Tex Mex items on the menu. All very tasty and a very good salsa. Wait staff very courteous and do a great job of getting you in/out quickly at lunch time.
