Small restaurant that was crowded when we visited. The staff was very friendly and we had a table much faster than I thought we would. I had the best enchilada I have ever had in my life! As well as excellent margaritas.

This little restaurant accommodated 12 of us last night. The staff was great and food was outstanding. Tables turned over continually for the 2 1/2 hours we were there. I would gladly recommend it to everyone. Thanks Rosie for being so attentive.

We stopped to eat here while in Nelson after seeing it pop up on Google. I checked the menu, which looked phenomenal. My husband had the chicken enchiladas which sound kind of ho-hum. They were AMAZING. Best enchiladas I've ever tasted. I had a few...More
