Fantastic food

Food here is really good, prices are very very reasonable, service is just okay. But ultimately this is some of the best Mexican food I've had outside of Mexico!

I thought this place was pretty good. I just returned from Mexico and was sad to come home and needed a mexican fix. We had the enchilada (mix of chicken and beef) and the flautas (mix) and thought that for the price they were pretty good. I liked the beans and rice and will be trying new items on my... More

It was an easy entrance for my solo visit over lunch time. Some restaurants entryways have intimidated me and I sort of look in the window and keep moving on. The energy of the place was comfortable and I was greeted first with a recognition by the server, so that I knew she would be coming. She asked me where... More

The wait was really long, but the food was excellent. Four of us went and we each really enjoyed it. Felt like we were in Mexico. We went on a Friday and there was live music too. The only this is that the service needs to be better. There is only 2 waitress running around. But would definitely go again.

The good: their food is incredibly tasty...I've never had a menu item there that I haven't liked (order the choriqueso appetizer!). They give you free chips and salsa right there on the table, but watch out - both the green and the red are HOT, HOT, HOT! The monster burrito truly is monstrous...it's about the size of a small dog!... More

What a surprise. First, free street parking. Second, I expected a tiny little spot. Wrong. This place is really quite spacious. Lots of room and it was nice not to feel cramped. I've read previous reviews that complained about the service. Well, I would like to say that we had excellent service from a young lady who was friendly and... More

This is my third visit but I for sure will never go back. Food is really good but service needs a lot of improvement. I order a drink which I never got, other people got their food before me even though I had ordered first. I asked for my bill and after 15 minutes of waiting another waitress came to... More
