I thought the portion size was fine. Food was good and wait staff was very nice. I would come back here again.

Good sized portions, great salsa, and warm chips. Just average entrees and prices. Plus, I've never heard of putting Parmesean cheese on Mexican food!

I love this little authentic Mexican restaurant. The people are helpful and friendly. I love the chipotle enchiladas, a bit of a spice, great favor!

I have been coming here for a few years now and recently noticed that the prices have increased and the food is not as good as it used to be. The food is still decent and the chips and salsa are very good but there are better Mexican restaurants in the area that I would rather frequent.

This is our favorite local restaurant - it's a family-owned business and they have a lot of pride in maintaining standards of excellence. All the menu items are delicious, and you can count on the food coming out hot and fresh. The complimentary chips and salsa are yummy, and we love the sangria as well!

Great food. Fast service. Friendly staff. This is one of my family's favorite places to go. Birthdays are fun with the big sombrero.
