We stopped by for lunch and were please with the beef burrito and taquitos although they were a little dry. The waitresses are very friendly, but we were hoping for tamales on the menu.

Not a happy camper, food was cold, way too many beans and not enough chicken or chili. Staff was just ok and didn’t really care about customer satisfaction. Too much competition in ABQ to warrant another try. Will stick with Duran’s Station or Cervantes....

A business associate said we had to go there. It is off the path but easy to find. It is a small family run restaurant that serves some of the best food around. Between our crowd we probably tried everything and all were perfect. Definitely...More
