Charming outdoor patio

We chose this attractive restaurant immediately adjacent to the State Park because of its enticing outdoor dining area. We were pleasantly surprised by the excellent Mexican cuisine, efficient courteous service and modest prices. One of the best dining spots in the area!

Great place for families! It serves a variety of delicious, authentic Mexican dishes. It's also reasonably priced. Excellent friendly service!

Wait staff were great. We opted to eat inside. Nachos were huge and delicious. Disappointing they did not serve hard liquor margaritas...only had "wine" margaritas. The flour chips mixed in with the regular corn tortilla chips were great.

We went there for lunch and indeed the food is excellent. Portions are almost enough for two but you must add 3$ for an extra plate if you want to share. However it may be the case only for lunch whee dishes are cheaper than fog dinner.

Went there on Friday night at 6PM and had no trouble getting an inside table. The outside tables were a little busier but most of the inside tables were available. My wife ordered the crab enchiladas and loved them. They came with lots of crab meat and a yummy red sauce. Her order was mistakenly served with re-fried beans instead... More
