Great little place

For almost 30 years I have driven by this place and never stopped.  You look at the outside and you think yeah nope.  It was a mistake.  I made it a destination tonight for me and my son.  We seated ourselves and were promptly acknowledged by staff.  The waitress collected our drink orders and provided menus and chips and salsa.  The menu was nice a clean without a ton of selections.  I like places that do a few things well.  That said the selection were ample.  Traditional Tex-Mex food.  I selected the Chilli Relleno/enchilada plate with beef.  My son ordered quesadillas.  Both meals came with rice and beans with flour tortillas on the side.  The salsa was very tasty, full of flavor.  The rice was exceptional.  Frijoles were flavorful and better than average.  The relleno was different than I am used to buy I attributed this to a regional different and it was quite good.  Rest of the meal is what you would expect and quite tasty.  Food was piping hot when served so no worries of cold food.  Food took just a little longer than expected but was worth the wait.  Price was very reasonable and our waitress friendly and willing to please and the restaurant was clean.  Overall a very pleasant experience.

Definitely Worth a Try

We decided to give it a try while doing laundry next door. I’m glad we did! We were there during lunch. Everything was very good but the rice and beans were excellent. Both were very flavorful and restaurants sometimes don’t worry about that. The salsa was good, spicy but not too hot. The guacamole was exceptional and they weren’t skimpy with serving sizes on anything. We were at Adobe the other day and while it was good, this little hole in the wall place beats them. The service was very good too. The prices were very reasonable.
