Can Willie Nelson, ZZ-Top and Johnny Cash be wrong? They've visited this colorful cafe operated by the Ortega family and are noted on the dining room's "plaque of fame." Maybe they come for the Chiles Rellenos (stuffed chile peppers); maybe it's the tamales. But whatever reason, locals and visiting celebs flock to this mom-and-pop Mexican strip mall spot, and they keep coming back. A Mexican village mural and bright, south-of-the-border colors give the dining room a festive atmosphere in which to enjoy the simple, yet satisfying dishes. Try the Carne Seca (reconstituted dried beef with onions and chiles) or any of the combinations named for Ortega family members. Add a margarita or Mexican beer and you'll have a filling and flavorful meal.
