I enjoy this little place. It is in a strip mall and I found the staff, the owner, and a woman (not sure her connection) to be above and beyond in service. I greet them in Spanish and they reciprocate. My Spanish is fair so I enjoy practicing and they seem patient with me. I always order a lunch special... More

Went here over the summer, never thought to write a review. Sat in the back with my family by the chip station. Food was good and service is great but I noticed they were taking the uneaten chips people left and putting them back into a large container and then getting chips out of that container to serve to new...

Basic good quality Mexican food, good but not overly fancy. The best feature in this place is the staff - every single staff person makes you feel welcome and they are happy you are there. The prices are very reasonable. Great place for lunch or dinner, friends, family or couples. If you want to be able to have a conversation,... More

When we walked in, we were greeted immediately by a lovely lady with a beautiful smile. Three different people helped to serve us and each one was smiling and very friendly. They were very attentive without being annoyingly attentive. We had an option of eating the buffet or from the menu. We saw other people with plates from the buffet... More

They have Sunday brunch and we went for Mothers Day. All the Mexican cuisine plus an omelet maker and waffle maker and fresh fruit bar! We enjoyed it as the staff is also A+. Recommend for an inexpensive fun brunch!

This one doesn't happen to be terrible. The food I've had here on my different visits has almost always been acceptable, or more so. The wait staff is friendly, and the service is quick and clean.
