My wife and I like the Happy Hour Marguaritas which put us in a good mood. We usually order the 3 entre menu (taco, chile rellano, ?) with rice and beans; i usually ask for less rice and more beans. One meal fills us and we take the other home. Very good service.

We were so excited to find great Mexican food that others had said was great. We bought the really large margaritas-what a joke-all fruit juice, no alcohol!!!..No buzz there at $16 each!!! the food was ok, the chips were ok, the salsa I really liked

We took family for birthday get together and the food was excellent. The shredded beef taco and beef enchiladas were packed with flavorful meat. The service was good but it does get awfully noisy in the place.

Although I've been coming here since I was a small child and this review may be on the more biased side because of the countless times I've been here and have majorly contributed to the financial well-being of this restaurant, I can honestly say, after eating at numerous of mexican restaurants around the country, and even around the world, that...
