  • The best home-made Mexican food

    I've been going to this restaurant because they have that hard to find authentic home style taste and they make tortillas fresh - on the spot - and they're so good you could eat them by themselves. Their menu is just right, having all the components that make up just about every dish you can think of - it's a small (hole in the wall) restaurant and at times you may have to wait 10 minutes, but it's worth it and you will see people waiting - why? Because honestly, there's almost no dish that is not good (and they serve menudo and cocido every day, even birria!) - and there are some that are just plain great. Before my mother passed away I would go to lunch with her all the time and she was a great cook, so she was as picky as the sun is hot - and more then 1/2 the time when I asked her where to? She'd say, with a smile on her face, 'Chispa!'....which made me happy to make her happy. I couldn't rate this any better, to impress my mom meant you took care in the details (to mom that was roasting fresh chiles, cooking on low heat when necessary, fresh ingredients, just the right amount of spices - never too salty or bland, salsas that let you know someone knows how to cook and consistant, consistant, consistant). And everyone there is friendly and they already know what I like -so I don't even have to say the whole dish (lengua en salsa de tomatillo con frijoles y arroz - THE BEST!) - I almost regret rating it cause that means I might have to wait longer....but my mom shared this place so can I. Take your parent(s) out to this little place...they'll want to go back and so will you.

  • Wow!! Talk about HOT!!! this place rocks!!!!

    You may think that a place in E.L.A. may be too far for your fancy or the food may be the same as any other Mexican joint. WRONG!!! This place rocks!!! The food is outstanding!!!! Very tasty and not your typical rice & beans combination style. We treid a few dishes to share and ordered apps as well. The taste is undescribable. Mmmmmm... makes you lick your lips!!!! Their dishes are 5 STAR!!! The service is excellent and very warm. They treat you like kings and queens. We were greeted as soon as we stepped in. The owner or owners son was so nice and extremely courteous. My girlfriends and i will definitely return!!!!
