Popular in neighborhood. They get very busy at lunch. You can take out or eat it. Much better that fast food Mexican. Tables are often not clean and floor can be littered.

Last time I was at this restaurant was in 1992. I ordered the same thing I used to order...cheese enchilada plate and chicken taco. Totally the same tastes. Love how some things just don't change

The food here is great quality and it's really reasonably priced. Not much atmosphere here and chips and salsa are an extra charge but I guess that's how they keep their prices so budget friendly. I love the potato tacos and the chile relleno burrito...More
