Rambling, friendly Mexican restaurant and party palace that's still kickin' after some 60 years in business. Live bands and mariachis on the weekends make it a destination nightspot for locals. The food is straight-ahead Mexican fare, nothing fancy, but the menu does offer a wide array of choices from chicken mole and steak Veracruz to huevos rancheros and machaca tacos. Read our review.
