If in a bind it will do but there are better options

Went here for lunch and the food wasn't bad but it did take a long time to get it. Unless you're on a tight budget, I recommend other restaurants in the area.

We've tried flautas and enchiladas, really bad, tasted like frozen food heated in microwave. Decided not to try the other food and left.

If your mother were Mexican, and you went to her house for Sunday lunch, you would eat like you do here. The salsa molcahette (spelling) is the best I have had, actually all three salsa they offer are excellent. Completely recommend this restaurant. A bit pricey for what it is, but for my money, it is worth it. I have... More

I had Mexican meatballs "Abondagas" in a chipotle sauce. They were amazing. Look forward to returing soon.

I've been here twice. The second time I went in with an open-mind but still came out disappointed. The first time I went I ordered a "torta." Probably, the easiest Mexican food you can make since it resembles a sandwich. Hated it! Now, hate is a strong word but that is how I would describe the taste it had of... More

There are many of these restaurants. All are the same. Eat at one 6 days a week for lunch and have tried almost everything on the menu. Some are great while others are good. All depends on what you like, but all is good. Strongly recommend for a Lunch. Other places are better for Dinner.

It is a good choice for simple Mexican food. It is not a gourmet place. However, they serve a wide variety of Mexican dishes: enchiladas, flautas, sopes, tostadas... If you find it difficult to decide, you may have a sampler for some $10USD ... I noticed that local people come to this place.
