Cute little restaurant off the beaten path. The food was delicious, the restaurant was very cute and intimate (seats 49). The chips and salsa were both regular corn chips AND fried flour chips. Everything from the service to the food was awesome.

Wonderful menu. Great flavors in the enchiladas with dark mole sauce. My wife had the chile relleno and also very flavorful and not too cheesy. All in all a good night of dining Mexican.
