Nice, clean, with good food

We went in at the end of lunch. The restaurant was clean and the waitstaff was nice. Food was good. There is a catering truck outsize so I take it that they do catering as well.

This is a family owned and operated Mexican food restaurant and stays very busy. The food is good and they serve large portions. It is what we call Tex-Mex.

Went in a group of 14 and they handled everything to perfection. The food and beverages were outstanding and reasonably priced. Highly recommend for a good Mexican meal.

We were pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was. We didn't have to wait for a table despite the fact the parking lot was full, they had plenty of seating. Our food was tasty and served to us quickly.

Missed the old ambiance of several years ago with the dark bar /dark lightning throughout...Lower prices and bigger meal servings may help bring people back to your restaurant....Also, offer Breakfast (Like El Padrino)

Three items make a great restaurant for us. Service, Food, Atmosphere. This restaurant was excellent in 2 out 3 areas but lacked greatly in the third. Food was excellent & atmosphere was lovely.
