I've been very impressed with service and speed both times we've been. The menu options we've tried have all been delicious and reasonably priced. I hope you stop by... More

Mary Lou is the best Mexican appie I have ever had. Been there twice and drove a long way both times just to have Mary Lou again. What is it? Quesadilla covered with red or green chile con carne.
