My very first visit to this deli with a friend on his recommendation for a choice Sunday breakfast. I know Lot of people do not like man-do but theirs is tops & I have tried quite a few over the years.

The silverware and plates were not clean. The chimichangas we had made us feel sick that was the last time that I will ever go there

When you are looking for authentic Mexican food, this is the place. Although clean, decor is simple. Focus is on the food. Menu has all the usual Mexican dishes, menu-do on Sundays, best Chile Colorado on the planet.

Tiny green building right across the tracks behind Awful Annie's. Friendly, helpful, delicious, and affordable. If you happen to go on a day when they have the green salsa with tomatoes, be sure to try it or take a pint home.

Couldn't get past the appearance. The chip and salsa bins (serve yourself) were empty and greasy looking. The place did not look clean.
