It is a small size restaurant but the taste of the food there is delicious and listening to the many stories from the owner ""Nikko"" you just have a wonderful time. I would walk into the restaurant and in a moment's notice, a nice and sweet bald and old gentleman would say ""hello my friend, how are you, would you like to try our specials today,"" with a bright smile, you just cannot say no. I ordered the Grilled Chicken Breast Platter, which was topped with a tomato and pepper jack cheese, it also came with beans, rice, some fried vegetables, and fresh made flour tortillas. The taste of the chicken was good and juicy but the fried onions and vegetables made the meal stand out.

I then had the opportunity to chat with the owner ""Nikko"" and he would tell me that he
Pros: The ambience was nice, peaceful, and like a small restaurant in a Mexican pueblo.
Cons: Just the size of the restaurant is a little small so I do not think I will throw my wedding reception there.
