X-Mex restaurant in Colfax CA.....is a place that needs to find an identity. The menu has two sides...one side is very mediocre Tex-Mex cuisine (3 stars)....the "Gringo Side" contains some stellar American entrees such as smoked Tri-Tip, glazed pork ribs, burgers and steaks. Everything on this side of the menu is outstanding (5 stars).
Overall, I give the X-Mex in Colfax....4 stars.
PROS: The freshly made salsa is better than El Portal.
CONS: You can find better mexican food in Auburn at El Portal.
