The food is good. Mostly chicken dishes. The lady that runs it is a little rude and her English is rough. They only sell bottled drinks. I go there pretty often for lunch when I am in the neighborhood.

The menu is limited, but the food they offer is delicious. The chicken tacos are my favorite, crunchy shells, tender chicken, great salsa. The beans and rice are very good too.
