The ranchero dishes (steak and shrimp), burritos, and enchiladas are all awesome and the sides (rice and beans) are our favorite in town. The margaritas are also amazing. We're trying to eat at every mexican restaurant in town, but we keep coming back here. We love this place, please give it a try. —nretamp

It's cheap, hearty, tasty, and you don't feel gross afterwards like you do when you eat at some of the other breakfast establishments in town. The customer service is phenomenal, and let's not forget the $1 tacos! Yum! Definitely try it out! (Breakfast is only served weekend mornings, I believe.) —JuanaBNDavis
