Went here for early dinner after driving all day and it was down the road from Hampton. My chicken enchiladas were tough and dry. I did get a side of green chile sauce but enchiladas were still tough and dry although filled with chicken. Hubby's enchilada and taco were ok. Guess there is a culture difference but they had no...

Nothing outstanding about its looks, but don't let that fool you: service and food was great. Our waitress was very personable. Wife loved her taquitas. My enchiladas tasted great although they did not have a lot of filling.

Food was delicious. I ordered a basic combination plate, but it was yummy with green chile! They bring out chips and salsa to start you off. And they serve margs and beer.

The people here were super nice. The parking lot was full and patrons came and went at a steady pace for carryout. The food was average.

The cream of mushroom was very salty and I wonder if they did not use Campbell canned soup. My steak meat was tough. The vegetables that came with the steak are just frozen carrots and peas that they reheated in a microwave. Greeting was terrible. Not a good place to eat.

The food was good Mexican cuisine. However, the server, Cheyann, was exceptional. We were there on vacation, and came in for dinner one night, and returned the second. She recognized us immediately when she greeted us at the door which was unusual in my experience. Service was prompt, and she was friendly, charming, and quite genuine. When she learned that...

Recommended by the front desk at our hotel, convenient and close by. My husband enjoys Mexican, I do not. He enjoyed his dinner, I basically had a chicken tortilla with lettuce and tomato and not bad. Service was a little slow considering the place wasn't really crowded. Our waitress took our order, brought our our dinner and disappeared. She never... More

Stopped by on a whim and was very impressed. Clean, quaint and personable. Huervos Rancheros were great! Hot sauce and chips were excellent. Sauce was spicy with a bite but not hot uncomfortable. Pleasant local vendors offered local wares that were nice. Very nice staff as well!

Good New Mexican chow. Love their green sauce. Cheyenne the waitress was super kind and explained some of their dishes, which helped us in making our selections. Seems like a good family place.
