This is a nice restaurant located on the eastern side of Cortez. It is easy to find and has parking. The food was very delicious, full of SW flavors. It seemed to be popular with the locals which is always a good sign.

We visited this magnificent part of USA this summer and we fell in love with the places, but most importantly with this amazing family restaurant. And, without doubt, we had the best Mexican food ever here. The food was PLENTY and DELICIOUS and the staff...More
