Wonderful Mexican food. On Tuesdays they have $1 mini tacos that are great. Add a side of rice and you're in heaven. All of their Mexicans meals are great.

We shared a bowl of Chicken Tortilla soup and it was absolutely... More

My all time favorite in the tri-city area! Great selection of dinners and combos, DELICIOUS salsa (the non-chunky variety, my preference) with a great flavor and just enough "bite". They offer a hot salsa as well upon request. One side is the original restaurant and the other is the newer cantina with a sports bar type atmosphere. Never disappoints! Favorite... More
