Incredible home-style, authentic Mexican food; full of flavor and done the way REAL Mexican food should be. All served in a dumpy/charming little ex-house in a not-so-great area of Rancho Mirage. But this is one restaurant that will make you happy with it’s combination of fanTAStic, mouth-watering, real-live-authentic Mexican food, crazy-reasonable prices, and homey, cozy, traditional, un-fancy setting. Best thing (besides the chips and salsa?) The carne asada and the Chile Verde. Yummmmmmmmmmm! The torillas taste homemade, the beans are aprropriately lardy and the rice is great. Sodas come in a plastic tumbler and the plates are big, warm and happy.
