Good neighborhood Mexican rest

I visit here weekly. Great frozen margaritas, which is how I rate Mex Restaurants. Everything is good, with excellent service.

We really like the chips and salsa to start our meal, the food is always hot and has great favor and presentation. The service is always there but not rushed or intrusive. Prices are in line with other resturants in our area, Good American Mexican food.

This is a good Mexican restaurant especially for the SE, but nothing like a CA or AZ Mexican. Good price and nice atmosphere.
