Of course we are regulars to the one out of town. The waiter is really nice and knows what we want when we walked thru the door. Food is good. The building is not new, but is clean. Really friendly place.

The owner is Juanita and she and her family own Morales on 59 North and the one on First Street in downtown. Alcohol is not served at the downtown location. This is an authentic Mexican food restaurant with no frills or fancy settings. The locals...More
