Excellent food, served by a gracious lady with a beautiful smile for a greeting. Small indoor down to earth area for seating. Very comfortable, not pretentious. Has a take out window for picking up call in orders.

The flavor is so-so but the portions are very much lacking. When we ate here I noticed that the portions were much smaller than say Chef Lupe's just up the road. The prices are a shave cheaper than Chef Lupe's. But I'd prefer spending another...More
