After 35 years in the same location, Nabor and Norma Nuñez still make some of the tastiest Mexican home cooking in town. The green chile, spicy and addictive, contains all fresh ingredients; beef tacos come loaded with lean, shredded beef. And it's all even better washed down with one of the bar's 100-plus tequilas.
Tips from foursquare
The green chili is amazing!!! It's a must have and don't forgot to say hi to mama la cueva!!
The Carne Asada is seriously amazing!!
The salsa has a kick!
Be wary of the green chile. It can be a scorcher.
Skip it. Green chili relleno was soggy. Service was ok but rushed.
