This is a small very Mexican restaurant, no booze, just good food.

We almost drove away because of the antique look, then it occurred to me that this might be a mistake, so we went in. It was a plain Jane place but very Mexican, AND most of the patrons were Mexicans. That is a very good sign the food is real.

The menu is Tex Mex, so don't look for that hybrid California stuff there. Nor is it way south of the border. All the help are Mexican also.

I had Chili Rellenos stuffed with chicken.  The Pablano pepper was huge AND fully stuffed, not half full. Order the ranchera salsa with it which is not offered on the menu. My wife had a chicken plate, and the chicken was highly spiced and not just with pepper. Very good.

If you are a fluff head young (or older) woman, go to another place. You will walk in jabbering a mile a minute, loud, to your friend, and Mexicans get turned off by this. You may not get the best service. 

The atmosphere is clearly Mexican, and the Gringos are clearly Texan in manners also. College students..... see if you can adapt to the atmosphere instead of raging and roaring like fools. You will be MUCH better treated. 

Having said that, I noticed that the Gringos were being treated just as well as the Hispanics. We certainly were.

Just as the waitress arrived to take our order, I dropped a large glob of salsa from my tortilla chip onto my shirt. The waitress totally ignored me as I cleaned myself up while she turned to take my wife's order. Once I was presentable, she turned back to me and acted like this Gringo was perfectly normal. Nice Mexican manners..... trying to help people save face.
