Not the biggest fan of Mexican in any food form so I may not be the best to judge. I had a take out order of chicken quesadilla. They were okay. Made fast, very little wait time. Staff was friendly. My order was still hot by the time I ate it. Portion was large and the price was fair at... More

They were and that's just not right. The barbaracoa taco was better. The salsa and chips were fine, but ordinary. A good deal. Lots of... More

A converted piazza hut, stackable chairs and tables covered with a spongy oilcloth greeted me, but I presisted on, glad I did. A friendly waitress quickly arrived to take my order and bring the requisite chips and salsa.

The food is very good, and the prices are very reasonable. This restaurant has been a Sunday morning hangout for me for awhile, and I always look forward... More

Really good food at good prices. The guacomole and salsa has cilantro in it though. I know cilantro is a love/hate food.
