Stopped based on other reviews. Very low key looking, but food and service were very good. Had the lunch specials, which were good portions. Dinners looked awesome. Would definitely go back.

I eat here often. I love the food and the price is decent. The building may not look it, but the food hidden and prepared inside is great! I have always had kind interactions with the staff, who are always working hard and quickly to get the food out. Having had real authentic Mexican food prepared for me, this place... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in this area. The food is great, service is good and the price is good. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that it can get pretty crowded.
