And

Los hermanos has great authentic sonoran food. The other place in town about 1000 feet farther up the hill, is the worst food I've had on the road in 30 years.

 

If you like rough and tough beefy beef, o:-) order their los hermanos machaca.

If anyone is willing to let me ride shotgun, I would love to join you! I can earn my keep by taking pictures, packing lunch/snacks, or buying gas. Anyone?
