Some of the best Mexican food we've had outside of Mexico. The chili rellenos were outstanding! The chips and salsa, enchiladas, carne asada, taco, and tortillas were very good. Great find and well worth going out of your way!

What a great little place - and it is small. We found this on line with some high ratings and also noticed that they had numerous Gluten Free options. Also, have Paleo options as well. First off, we loved their salsa that is served -...More
