We were from out of town and truly felt it. The waitress never returned after serving our food while the locals were waited on hand and foot. No refills had to ask for chips and salsa and pretty much hunt her down for the check. Very disappointed.

Fresh, Healthy, Unique. This isn't your standard Mexican food, it's a healthier more creative take on our favorites. Fun atmosphere, family friendly, great service

Not fancy just comfortable with great food. Had chili relleno dish with rice and beans. All great!! My husband had norteno enchiladas plate OMG good. If you like taco bell you won't like this place as they serve real Mexican food.

After reading the positive reviews, gave it a try, Firstly the menus were dirty, not a good start, the food was just your very very average Mexican, it was just edible is all we can say. So if you are looking for big quantity maybe it is for you, but quality Mexican food in our opinion it is not.

A decent Mexican Restaurant with typical fare that was hot and very tasty. COLD Mexican Beer on Tap. Nice service. Nice to find a place late on a Sunday evening that was still open and willing to serve a good meal.

We have friends that eat here frequently so we thought we would give it a try. The service was marginal. Our waitress made multiple errors on our bill and we had to return it twice for correction. We did get our food rather timely. We both ordered different kinds of ala carte tostadas. They weren't anything special. The restaurant has... More

The service was far below average and SLOW, but the food is OK. Certainly not the best Mexican food I have ever had, but good enough to overcome the horrible service. I'm not sure how much the waitress was to blame as it seemed that the kitchen couldn't keep up and the food took forever. The crazy thing is the... More
