Fodor's Review

Started by Monica Flin in 1922, the oldest Mexican restaurant in town still serves splendid versions of the Mexican-American staples Flin claims to have originated, most notably chimichangas and cheese crisps. The tortilla soup and carne seca chimichanga, made with beef that is air-dried on the premises—on the roof, actually—are delicious.
