Great little unpretentious dinner. I had the roast beef sandwich $8.25 and my wife had chicken quesadilla $8.95. Both very good. Topped off with a home made apple pie $3. Tom

Food a bit pricey but if you're a Mexican food lover it is so worth it. I had the Chile Relleno plate - best I ever had! The Chili was soooooo deliciously flavored! Lots of cheese in the refried beans - just the way I...More
