Ok, I'm going 5-stars on this place, a rarity for me: in otherwise quiet almost haunted Downtown Garland Square, this little gem of a place is on State street. Nice space, nice patio, nice choice of house brewed beers (and wine for those that need their pinkies raised): now for the food. I ordered a half pound of lean brisket, a half pound of moist brisket, and some ribs. The brisket were amazingly 'bark-y' and just the right among of smoke, the ribs smoked perfect for me (a little tug required, not overcooked "fall of the bone" crap), and while I never do this, even the BBQ sauce in bottles on the side table was tasty (on my finger anyway). I really like this place.

My wife and I try to eat here every Friday night. It is the best Mexican food for the price anywhere around. They have the best guacamole and you get twice as much for the same price as any other restaurant we know of. We like the combination plate but anything we have tried there has always been excellent. The service is super fast too! The waitstaff is made up of Juan and two waitresses (both named Carmen). They can take care of the entire restaurant and we never have to wait more than 5 minutes to get our meal after they take our order. Also, the sometimes have live music on Friday nights. Try it. You will like it!
Nice place, way bigger in the inside that you would think. I ordered the breakfast special that was on the handwritten board this morning: 2-each eggs, sausage links, bacon, and pancakes with hashbrowns (or home fries or grits or tomatoes). The eggs were perfect, done as I requested, bacon was crispy, sausage links were boring, home fries were tasty, pancakes were forgettable. Waitress was very friendly and attentive without being annoying. Nice place.
