The homemade chips and salsa dip are great. Both are made fresh daily on site. I also highly recommend the tamale plate. The lunch portion has two tamales, refritos (refried beans) and rice. The dinner portion adds another tamale. It is topped with their signature gravy and grated cheese. The food is consistently hot, delicious and very filling. They have... More

In the area for business and there were no a lot of choices in the area, but the folks at the Fairfield Inn recommended this place, and their recommendation was SPOT ON. We ordered a carnitas burrito that could have easily been TWO meals, and it was perfectly spiced. Enjoyed their home-made salsa that came with the chips!
