Very good food, service with a nice ambiance. Haven't been here for a while, and was pleasantly surprised with the food. Prices are slightly higher than other Mountain Mexican, but not excessive.

This is a decent Mexican restaurant but they keep changing their true hits on the menu to the point where you don't want to order them anymore some of them have even been eliminated.

My husband and I eat here often. We always recommend it to visitors as the food is good and it is in the center if the village. Get there early as there is usually a long wait.
