We did a mini road trip enjoying the beautiful Father's Day and arrived in Cortez about dinner time. We ordered the marinated mushrooms and they are the ABSOLUTE BEST!!! I could have made a meal on those alone. Their Mexican cabbage was equally as fabulous!!...More

This is one of those hit and miss restaurants, but mostly miss. Miss= Too much grease, too much salt, meager meat portions in tacos/quesadilla/burrito/enchiladas Hit= not much grease not over salted and a bit more meat in above dishes.

It was a busy night considering it was Cinco de Mayo but all in all service was good and fast! Best Sangria I've ever had.
