Fodor's Review

It's worth the drive to Lafayette for the savory chile verde (green chile) that Efrain cooks every day. His family's homey café has simple, green-painted arbors and hand-painted tables. The porch is a great place to relax before dinner with a margarita served in a pint-size mason jar. Efrain prepares low-fat, authentic entrées with fresh beef and succulent pulled chicken. The large-grain rice is light, and refried beans are creamy but not greasy. Finish your meal

with a crisp, hot sopapilla (a light, fried pastry served hot with honey). Expect to wait for a table on a Friday or Saturday night.
