We were welcomed warmly at the front and seated quickly . Our waitress had our drinks on the table moments after we were seated. Chips and salsa were brought to our table shortly after. The enchiladas we ordered were good but the platter they were served on was very hot and my date burned herself even though we were told... More

and they not only did separate checks, but the service over-all was very good, as was the food! The usual large portions, which make for lovely left-overs if you aren't a big eater! The only draw-back is the acoustics in the back room. It is very hard to have a conversation if there are lots of people in that room.... More

Got the #5 dinner. Taco and beef tips were great, chicken enchilada was good, chile relleno was so so. I would go back for the beef tips alone. Service was okay but nothing special. I would go back.

I have been eating here for years, the food is consistently good. I especially like their house salad dressing. When my food comes, I toss my salad on top and eat it all mixed up. They have some good desserts too, but I'm usually too full to order dessert. I came here for my birthday and was even greeted by... More

My wife and I finally got around to trying this place, having heard good things. Simply put, this is a completely ordinary, average, run-of-the-mill chain Mexican restaurant. Our meals were bland, flavors indistinct and just like a hundred other boring Mexican meals we have had a any number of Mexican places. There is SO much Mexican food around, and most... More

We've been here numerous times over the years. Lunch, dinner and parties. The menu seems to have something for each persons taste. I try something different each time we go there. They have a large banquet room also. The food is good but swimming in too much sauce for me, and chef is heavy handed with the cumin spice. But... More

Stopped in on a Sunday evening with a party of ten. Only a 5 minute wait and we were seated at a nice large table. The salsa and chips were very good and the bowls were kept filled. The meals were very good and were large portioned. The service was very good and not one complaint was uttered during our... More

My family has been going to this restaurant for many, many years. If you like Mexican food this is the place to go. The food is consistantly good and one of my favorites is the house salad. The dressing they make themselves, and you will not find it anywhere else. If you love flan try it here...its good. Habanero Hots... More

This is our favorite place to go to eat. The staff is so professional. They take the time to explain the menu items to you. This is also the first place that I have seen the owner actually working . He makes drinks at the bar, he greats his guests and he also serves the food. If it is real... More

The service was great. The food was good but nothing I haven't tasted before. Good basic Mexican food.
