The red was soupy and could 'splatter' like water. Not sure if they just had an off day, but wasn't good. They do have a breakfast special for 4.99 that is basic but good.

Tried for dinner on a trip through Las Vegas. Thumbs up from my better half on the chile rellano and sopapillas. The "Dirty Tacos" (the corn tortillas are fried with cheese on the outside, then stuffed with a choice of meat, salsa, etc.) were a...More
