My mom told me to go try some food from here because she saw the $4.99 lunch special on their sign while driving on Park Blvd. My brother wanted Taco Bell but I dragged him with me here instead to get some food to take home. The location is sorta hidden by the large Race Track next door and it can be easily missed if you drive too fast. What's great is that the Bus line has a stop right in front of this restaurant so there's no need for a walk if you're taking the bus. There's a private parking lot but it was a little tiny, I didn't have any trouble parking because there was no cars there at all. It seems like a slow place because I don't usually hear much about this place and the fact that it was completely empty. 

There are booths instead of tables. The restaurant reminds me of a house made into a restaurant. It was clean and there's a lot of specials that goes on here. There's the lunch specials starting at $4.99 and up and also some dinner specials starting at $5.99 and up. The menu is very simple, there's appetizers like your dips, ceviche, burritos, tamales, enchiladas and so on. 

I got the lunch special 1 enchilada and 1 tamale which comes with rice and beans.  Over all I loved the whole mom and pop feel this restaurant gives off and love that they have specials on their meals but I wasn't totally in love with their food. It was good I really liked the tamale and beans but it wasn't amazing. Honestly after finishing my meal I wasn't full and that was pretty sad because I'm a poor college kid looking for any possible way to be full 24/7 on a low cost! Haha! You may think otherwise so go ahead and try this place if you're in the area. I'm sure you'll find something you'll like from here (the ceviche looked good!).
