Mex­i­can-style break­fasts, ap­pe­tiz­ers, soup, salad, bur­ri­tos, en­chi­ladas, ta­cos, fa­ji­tas, que­sadil­las, chimichangas, tamales, tostadas, flau­tas, steak, chicken, seafood, desserts. spe­cial of three corn tor­tilla ta­cos ($7.99), stuffed with my choice of six meats topped with onion and cilantro. Pre­sented with so many op­tions, I s t raye d f ro m my usu a l chicken en­trée and chose the bar­be­cue shred­ded beef. The soft ta­cos were small but de­li­cious, and when ac­com­pa­nied by rice and beans, it was a hearty, south-of-the­bor­der treat that fully sat­is­fied. My son had the mixed fa­ji­tas ($13.99), a boun­ti­ful plate of steak, chicken and shrimp fa­ji­tas served with flour or corn tor­tillas, rice, beans and salad. He rarely looked up from the plate un­til it was clean. De­li­cious, au­then­tic en­trees and low prices will keep you com­ing back.

Very friendly and prompt. The eatery is so small you can al­most make a re­quest un­der your breath and the server will hear and re­spond. The wait­ress was help­ful in pointing out lo­cal fa­vorites and spe­cials.

Ver y quiet on a re­cent week­night.

Chil­dren will love the chips and salsa and milder en­trees like ta­cos, en­chi­ladas and bur­ri­tos. There’s also ham­burg­ers, na­chos and Mex­i­can street corn-on-the-cob.
