Great Mexican food, for a good price

We have eaten in the restaurant and had take out as well. In both cases the food is fresh and tasty. A wide variety of authentic dishes to choose from and friendly staff. Check it out!

My husband and I love Mexican food. We tried this place one night and will definitely be coming back. The margaritas, tacos, and service were all fantastic! Also loved the live music on the Friday night we were there.

I love the fresh chips and tasty salsa that come to your table right away. The basa is cooked perfectly and is a really big meal with 3 tacos, beans, rice, guacamole, and salsa. I always try to indulge in a dark Mexican beer as well. I never have room for dessert. The price is pretty decent for the quality... More

This place looks absolutely 100% NOT special and not the number one Mexican restaurant in the area and this may partially be due to the fact that the restaurant is located in what used to be a laundry mat...BUT...This food is so amazing. I loved EVERYTHING. I LOVED the flautas, it's a favourite of mine and GASP, I might even... More

food is good, but not enough service staff to keep the flow of food and customers happy. Would go back but prefer to be earlier than later (when the wait for tables seems to get a bit long). People waiting just means that the food is good and people are willing to wait in line.

I had lunch here - the chicken quesadilla was great. Anytime you can get a decent lunch for under 10$ is a steal. Service was fast and friendly. Will return.

It is all good. Great place to be as you feel you are in Mexico. Food is cheap, plentiful and service is great. It does get real busy so be patient.

Great authentic Mexican cuisine. Yes the place does leave a bit to be desired in the decor department but who cares the food is delicious. We were a party of five who each ordered different items - chicken, beef, vegetarian, etc and everyone loved their meals. The staff served efficiently and with a smile. Everything was very clean in the... More
