The food and the atmosphere here is good, better than most mexican restaurants in the area. Sometimes they have a mariachi band on hand. The fajitas are definitely the best meal here.

I love the jalepeno poppers. The cheese is good and the sauce is also good. The cheese enchiladas are good. The cheese is delicious and so are the beans and rice. X rating 9.9
