Lily's is a little place run by husband and wife. Went in and ordered the Carnitas which is real Mexican home cooking. The Carnitas were really good, really liked the 5 salsa bar option. Want to go back and try other things on the menu.

My husband and I stopped by here last Saturday and had the best posole I ever had! They only serve it on Saturday and it's Saturday and I'm craving it. We will definitely return.

Good food but it's not you usual Tex Mex restaurant. They have a salsa bar with 5 different salsas to try with your chips but they weren't anything special
