I had the Chili Colorado and it was excellent. The pork was tender and the sauce wasnt to spicey. If you are a tequila drink, instead of a shot order a double. The price of a double is less than 2 single shots. The service was very sweet and had eaten alot of the dishes there.

Warm crispy chips and good salsa, and cabbage app. We will... More

Very nice place. Service was friendly and quick. They give a great deal to senior citizens on the meals. Food came to our table nice and hot and tasted very fresh. I had a combination plate and enjoyed each selection.

Thank itinerent
