Starting with JJ at the bar while I wait for the gang. I was greeted with a handshake and a friendly hello. We were here a couple of weeks ago, and same friendly service and delicious food. Definitely recommend.

Sadly, no breakfast tacos, etc. after noon. My shrimp tostada was great. Guacamole was good. Fajita quesadillas were good. Ground beef chimichanga was so-so, very salty.

This is the place to get authentic Mexican food for a great price. Hot sauce isn't for amateurs...and they have one mean margarita for the serious drinker.

Always piping hot (from heat) food for breakfast, lunch, & dinner. Good service and friendly atmosphere. Fresh made salsa, not out of a jar!

They have tex-mex and real mexican food. It is one of the few places where the food is of high quality and the building is also in good shape. Normally with most mexican restaurants you get a nice building and average food, or a hole in the wall with great food. This one has both. I have not had a... More
