Cozy and food is great!

This little place is small, somewhat outdated, but the food is great, the service very good and the atmosphere is warm and cozy. The prices are wonderful....I personally love the Chimichanga and the fajitas for two......well, hope you are hungry!

The food here is always good and they have the best cheese dip. The servers are always friendly and the prices are very fair.

The restaurant is not fancy, but the people who work there are friendly and helpful, the food is out of the world, and the prices are very reasonable. We wouldn't think of going to any other Mexican restaurant.

Fajitas for two are really good and will feed you for a week. Highly recommend. Doesn't look like much from the outside but this is a great little place.

This place has been there for years and has always been good food for a great price. It's in a little strip mall that is run down but some of the best places are a hole in the wall. And they have the best cheese dip out of any of the Mexican places around.

Somehow or take out order was messed up. I called when I returned home to complain and the female manager on duty spent several minutes telling me how she did not mess up the order and it was not their fault. Not what I was wanting to hear. I asked them what they were willing to do to make me... More

We were told about this restaurant by one of it's regular patrons. Luckily, he told us that the facade was not a real drawing card for the restaurant. It is in an older strip mall, next to a Chinese restaurant. However, once inside, it is typically decorated and immaculately clean. The waitstaff are friendly and quick to provide service. The...
