We only got a variety of tacos to go, but they were tasty, with fresh pico and good salsa. Eat in customers were locals who had larger platters.

Our favorite place to eat in Deming. It is small but wonderful Mexican food with a great cook and friendly servers. Double check the hours as they sometimes change.
