    I can only say good things since I’ve been here twice but only really late at night and very tired. Queso blanco is good, nothing special. Ask for flour tortillas with it to elevate the experience.

    The guacamole is a must. Incredibly fresh, large portion, and comes in a stone pig head bowl. Available in small or large ($10.95). Possibly the best value on the menu. Make sure to order it spicy!

    The Tostada Laredo is technically a salad, but can hold its own with almost anything on the menu. Also the Tamal de Elote (sweet corn tamale) makes a great dessert.
