Amazing place! Good Mexican Food & good service. Parking is across the street. You pay at the counter. Ordered and was very happy with the chili rellenos!

Popular neighborhood diner/cafe. Inexpensive, but fabulous NM food. Didn't make it in for breakfast, did lunch twice. Friendly staff, good service. Just a 1/2 block from the Hispanic Cultural Center...catch them both!

Went during the weekday lunch rush, but our party of 6 was seated immediately. Our server was very pleasant, and took our orders quickly. Meals arrived in a timely manner, and everything was delicious. Being from out of state, I'm really glad we stopped in.
