“A favorite of our family since before I can remember. I love the red chile beef tamales. My husband loves the chimichangas. Tasty chips and salsa is always a win. We don’t drink, but some extended family love the margaritas. Enchiladas are tasty, and man...anything I’ve seen others get, they loved. There is occasionally a vendor outside of the door selling tortillas or other goodies to take home and support local hardworking people. ”
