Best Green Chile enchiladas in town! Their Habenero steak or chicken dishes are also amazing, just be prepared for your mouth to be on fire. But, if you like hot food those dishes are a must!!

We've eaten here a couple or three times, and it's been good each time. Never had a wait. Good margaritas! Would recommend.

We had a nice lunch and the food was really delicious. There were a few hiccups on service so I can’t rate this as a perfect experience but we would definitely come back.

Three of us went there a week ago. The restaurant was busy, so the waiters were very busy. Two of us ordered enchiladas, and they came out together. The other ordered posole, which didn't arrive at the table until 30 minutes after the enchilada plates...More

Gotta try the fried green chili strips. An appetizer but a large one. You can make them a meal as well as the quest and ground beef dip. Had to take most of our entrees home.Great Margaritas.

The food and drinks were ok nothing spectacular. We sat on the patio because I had my service dog with me and our waiter acted like he didn't want us there due to my dog. The service was very poor. I won't be going back.

This is a great restaurant. The salsa is excellent (and really, isn't that what a good Tex-Mex restaurant all about?), and the food is very good. (They will put a fried egg on your enchiladas if you ask for it.) The red sauce is milder...More
