    What happened L & J? Food and service was not up to par. Had to ask for our tostadas and chile sauce and the food was disappointing. That was the mole enchiladas with chicken. Not your best.

    I ordered the bean burrito and vegetable soup with rice. The waitress seemed a bit put off with my vegan order but she was relatively pleasant after the fact. I would eat here again.

    Although it was quite crowded when I went, the food made up for it. I had the Chili Relleno & let me tell you, it was hands down the best ive ever had. I definatly recommend this place!

    The mole sauce is made with nuts, so if you have an allergy you better not order anything with mole. :( I ordered the green chile enchiladas, which were very good. :)
