Yummy food! 8/18/2005

This is a great local restaurant. My personal favorite is their stuffed sopaipillas. Their prices are great and everytime I go in they are very busy but they get the food out quick! They also sell the husks to make tamales which are also priced great. My only complaint is that there is only one location in the entire city and it's not that close to where I live. But it's definitely worth the trip! :) more
