On Friday night we ventured downtown to have nice dinner. Found Irma’s as friendly and warm as it has been in the past. I ordered the chili relleno, guacamole, tamale with mole, and the wife ordered the beef enchiladas. The food was very flavorful and...More

Very poor parking if an event is going on at the ballpark! No room for people that want to dine. Dining room was not cool. Soup was very salty and lukewarm. Enchilada portions were small, but did have good flavor.
