Whenever we're in the mood for fantastic home cooked New Mexican cuisine at a very affordable price, then this is the place we head to. Staff are always friendly and attentive, without continually interrupting you. The food is always great and the portions are a good size without being stupidly large. I always choose quality over quantity. They have a... More

Love this place. Everyone is super friendly and the food is delicious. I love their vegetable quesadilla, something about the way they grill it up is very different and it tastes great. I recommend this place all the time because a lot of people haven't been and not offense, but I think it's better than Sadie's.

We have lived in the area for over 20 years and finally decided to try this hole in the wall based on a friend's recommendation. The beef and chicken fajitas were great with a unique sauce slightly reminiscent of teriyaki. The tortillas were soft and fresh. The shredded beef on my son's tostadas was tender and tasty. What really surprised... More

We just moved into a neighborhood near PAPA NACHO’S, so we decided to give it a try. We were delighted! The food was delicious, servings were large, and prices were reasonable! What more could you ask for? My wife and I ordered our dinners: Carne Asada Taco Plate and the Machaca & Beans Burrito. The Carne Asada meat was deliciously... More

Ambiance: as previous reviews have repeated, a mom-and-pop operation not a chain. This is definitely not Chili's. It looks clean but not fancy. Service was helpful but the kitchen was a bit poky. My waitress was the famous Gloria. She is your happy "girl next door". She makes you feel like family. Salsa: it was a sauce, not the chunky... More

We had absolutely delicious food, and the customer service was out of this world. I got the wrong order, but did not say anything because it was delicious. At the end of our dinner, they brought us a free to go meal and free sopapillas. Amazing food and a great family running the place. You should go!!!

This the best Mexican restaurant hands down! The food is absolutely the best in town, I'm a native New Mexican and have tried many, many local restaurants. If you want a true delicious Mexican meal please give this place a try. Family owned and operated!!!!

The restaurant is in a fairly run down strip mall that is very dated and in need of sprucing up; same thing for the interior of the restaurant. The service was very good and the food was delicious.

Hungry, like New Mexican, don't want to spend all day and still leave some "cash" in the wallet, you've come to the right place. Wednesday lunch and the place was busy but the service was prompt & Gloria was a real "joy" and attentive. Great menu selection and if you leave "Hungry" it's only because you left something on the... More
