Consistently good. For true SW taste, order your plate "Christmas" where possible (comes with both red and green sauces. Red is hotter). I also like the chilie rellenos. End with an order of sopapillas for dessert (use honey).

If you like Mexican then this a place you should visit. Everything is between $6.00 and $7.00. Food tastes great and quality is beyond excellent. You will not be disappointed.
