We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this restaurant. Before 5pm the parking lot was full and the outside of the restaurant impeccably clean and neat. The menu is extensive to please all palates. The Mexican food was delicious. Salsa was homemade and the tortillas (both flour and corn) were fresh and tasty. Servers were attentive but not intrusive... More

One of our favorite dinner places in town. Typical Mexican décor, fast friendly service. They offer seafood choices along with the usual Mexican menu items, all very well done. Our friends from Phoenix, a Mexican restaurant city, were impressed and complimentary. I'd recommend it to anyone.

My measure of quality, whether fair or not, is always the Chile Relleno. This one was very different, but maybe that's the custom here. It was mostly like a cheese omelet with a canned green chile, more omelet than chile. I am used to a fresh poblano chile, filled with cheese, battered and deep fried. The service and atmosphere were... More
