I've been to Efrains many times and had different items on the menu and have enjoyed all of them. The service is always good.

This Local Standby and Favorite for many years continues to put out authentic traditional Mexican food, in a busy but comfortable setting. They provide delicious choices of hot favorites with loads of Cheese, Sauces, and all the things that make Mexican Food Classic.

We've been meeting up with friend here for a number of years. The Verde is the best I've ever had. We were well taken care of for a few special occasions we had here. They are able to handle groups of 10 plus with ease.
