We have a delicious Molcajete (which is the name of the Mexican version of a mortar used to grind and mix) featuring a Mexican stew. This Mexican style stew is made of chicken & steak sautéed in special mild sauce with onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, and Mexican sausage, topped with fresh cheese, green onions, grilled cactus and jalapeno served with rice, beans, sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo. You can eve add shrimp for a trio Molcajete for a small extra charge. This delicious stew has the tastes of home along with some of the finer culinary choices like grilled cactus.

For a traditional option, you can try our Enchiladas Durango that has three different versions of the beloved classic. Each enchilada is topped with different sauces; one mole (a sauce made of guajillo, peanut, and chocolate) filled with chicken, the second covered with chipotle filled with spinach & mushrooms, and the last is covered a with a tomatillo sauce and filled with cheese. They are served with rice, beans, lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream. Definitely a great way to try some new flavors in a dish that you are sure to love.

Always a crowd favorite, our Tacos Al Carbon are a great, classic way to enjoy your time around the table celebrating family. This dish has four corn tortillas lightly dipped with guajillo pepper sauce, and filled with your choice of asada, grill chicken or adobada (marinated pork).
