    It's a popular neighborhood place with tasty and predictable fare. The old Queso dip is the reason I return every time.

    Got the usual chips and salsa, nachos with a side of guacamole, and the crispy chiles rellenos and everything was amazing. Waitress wasn't very attentive but the food made up for it. Highly recommend.

    The Queso is amazing!! And if debating between shrimp or fish tacos definitely go with shrimp. The fish are good but lacking the flavor that the shrimp have.
