Doesn't look like much from outside, but what a great place. Lunch is recommended. Sunday has special dishes, like menudo.

Nothing remarkable and a little dark. I prefer more light and ambiance, this had the feel of a dive and it was not appealing to me. The food was good and I actually would not mind going back just for the food, but there are nicer places in town with better food.

A great dining experience, a small mom and pop restaurant. This restaurant was recommended to me, we visited on Sunday after church. The staff is friendly and engaging with the clients, the food was excellent. The place is small and seem to be packed each time I visited, the service was great.

The prices are simply unbeatable, and I almost felt bad how much food I got for the price. When I arrived I was greeted right away, and within a minute had free chips, salsa and a... More

Didn't like either of the enchiladas. Hubby had a lunch fajita plate and it was just ok also. The best thing we had was the... More

Lots of menu choices which I can only guess to be authentic mexican entrees. We did not get too crazy with our choices although they all sounded great. I can be a little sketchy on molé, but my husband ordered it and literally my girls and I pretty much ate it all. My younger daughter said "it tastes like Christmas!"... More

By far and away this is the best meal you'll find in Denton for the amount you're going to pay. The service is quick and friendly and the family that owns the restaurant is the best. Can't say enough about the place.
