Good for tacos, enchiladas, and other standard NM fare. Try the green chili cheeseburgers...they are excellent!

A good local joint. Good food, good price. New Mexican menu, wednesday's are chef special days. My favorites are shrimp burritos and shrimp tacos to die for. Get there early if you want the specials they don't last long. It's an easy place to dine, order at the counter, pick a table and wait for your number to be called. A very popular lunch place at a reasonable price. Really good green chile chicken enchiladas at Christmas. Eat in or take out.

Fast food type restaurant serving spanish style food. You order at the counter, pay and they call your number. Open type seating. The food is authentic and very good at reasonable prices. The red chile can be spicy hot so be aware when ordering. Free parking in a shared parking lot.

The food is good here but it is served in styrofoam boxes and the drinks are served in styrofoam cups. The styrofoam really ruined my experience as is very hard to eat out of, makes a bad tase and contributes a huge amount of pollution to the environment.

Hopefully the managers can serve food on real plates with real silverware, or at least use biodegradable paper containers that don't last forever in the landfill. The place feels like 1963. Time to get up to date folks.
