Three generations of the Sanchez family operate this restaurant.
Pancho Sanchez and his son Eloy founded the restaurant in 1998; previously the building had been home to a buffet.
Recently, a third generation joined the family enterprise – Angel. “The best part is meeting all the people,” he says.
Signature dishes are the “works” burrito and molcajete, a cast-iron bowl of grilled chicken and steak, cactus and salsa.
Business is steady throughout the day – breakfast, lunch and dinner. A banquet room can hold 40 people.
