If you want to avoid the downtown parking nightmare, then I suggest you try La Familia on 62 highway. Great menu. Great food. Great frozen margaritas. They even have an outdoor area to sit close to a pretty waterfall.

Love Tex Mex. BUT, this was a disappointment. The food wasn't completely bad. The rice had no flavor, nor did the beans. The enchiladas were ok. Very small. The chips were kinda stale. The salsa was ok. The best thing I had was the strawberry daiquiri. The menu had a lot on it, but mostly the same things over and... More

We ate here on June 2nd. The food was not the best Mexican food that I ever ate but it was reliability good. It has a nice atmosphere. The collection of vintage lunch boxes were cool. Outside eating area looked neat.

We stopped here on the way out of town because it was Sunday and our first choices were all closed. It was a good choice! Staff was friendly and fun. Atmosphere left a little to be desired but the food was very good. Didn't have to wait long for it. Nice place overall!

We usually will eat here at least once when in town and are always happy. The food is fresh and hot. The fajitas were awesome. The service was very good and we will be back.

Very friendly staff. Service was prompt and polite. We had the taco salad and beef fajitas. The fajita meat was so tender you could cut it with your fork, it wasn't stringy like most places. And margaritas were perfect! Yeah the decor needs updating but their vintage lunchbox collection was cool!

Our food was awful, truly awful. We're easy to feed but this was awful food. It's hard to mess up Mexican food but they managed to do just that.
