Reviewer: Mark from San Diego, CA
Like the carnitas, cold beer, no fountain drinks, but that's ok. Good chips, good homestyle salsa's. Cheese enchiladas are average, but then, so are most everyone else'. You'll find Mexican food here that more than likely, you won't find at other places. Birrias, (goat), Snapper Vera Cruz. Camarones de Ajo (garlic shrimp), come to mind. Lots of local mex's, so you gotta believe the food's pretty good. It's NOT a taco shop!!! Don't expect taco shop food!!! If you're looking for upscale, this ain't the place. Quesadillas are just about the same anywhere, so don't expect anything different in that regard. We eat here when we come to visit family and have never been disappointed. Pictures of most all the dishes. I believe it's a husband & wife & family that run it, but I'm not positive. Very nice people. Very casual atmosphere. Give it a try!!!
