We ignored the possibility of steaks and barbecue and went for the combination plate and tostada compuesta. The chili is not quite up to Nellie's, but is okay (the meat is not quite as tender). We did have the posole soup, which is only offered on Fridays and Saturdays, and it was very tasty and full of chunks of meat. It is a meal in itself. Again, there’s no liquor license, so be content with water or iced tea. The sopapillas are not nearly the caliber of Nellie's Café, but better than commercial places. The ground meat tacos are even recommended by the wife of Danny Ray of Nellie's.
This restaurant is very popular with locals.
