This dying strip mall hole-in-the-wall Mexican joint was reviewed in yesterday's Post & Courier As stated in the review, this is a Mexican native's response to the cookie-cutter tex mex joints.

Ate lunch there today -- delicious. Quarter chicken on the grill, served with excellent pinto beans, yellow rice, and a cabbage based salad/slaw. Lots of tortillas, with three good sauces to choose from for more flavor -- the picante was indeed hot.

My dining companion had the 1/4 rack of ribs -- excellent. Seasoning was unusual and really tasty. Same sides.

With something to drink and tax, lunch for two was about $18.

The location is a bit off the beaten path, but I will be back.
