I can’t imagine that this place gets a lot of business. Tucked away in the back corner of an obscure strip mall, you have to know about this place and search for it. It’s not exactly visible from the street, save for the signage by the road. But, once you find it you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the lack of smoke, friendly service, and excellent happy hour deals.

We walked in and there weren’t more than six other customers. Flautas ($6) come four per order. Well seasoned and tender shredded beef are wrapped in crispy, flakey fried shells and topped with tomatillo sauce and an avocado relish. The fried mac and cheese ($6) are three large meatball-sized spheres. The thick, course outer shell dominated the dish, with only a small amount of bland mac and cheese contained within. The dish was in desperate need of more roasted tomato sauce to give it more flavor. The lack of seasoning didn’t stop there. The sliders ($7) would have benefitted from more sauce, too. At least the buns were buttery and light.

While the food isn’t outstanding, the happy hour deals of food ranging from $5 to $7 with $3 draft beer and $4 well drinks makes this a solid place to spend your late afternoon/early evening.
