This time it was a near miss. I can't tell if the Chef took the night off, or if there is a new Head of Kitchen, but it wasn't up to my last review. Now to be fair, there was nothing wrong with our dinners,...More

This is a cozy little place, so from time to time you can find yourself waiting in line for a seat. This is not your typical "Mextex" you find at the mall or other fast food joints, although you will note from the menu many...More

Authentic, flavorful food. If it's nice weather, sit outside in this quiet (for Ridgefield) little shopping area.

We were there for lunch. The owner has been there for over 25 years. Service was excellent. The food was great. I had one of the daily specials, Hatch Chile Stew. Awesome. We sat outdoors. I didn't go inside so I can't comment about that.
