The food at this restaurant is consistently the very best Mexican I have had! The service needs help though. Thank heavens there is never an issue with our food because you'd be hard pressed to find a waiter to fix it. Our waiter this time took our order, didn't day more than 6 words and left never to be seen... More

had lunch at this place, the food was great, staff was great, But the bathroom was the BEST. You will need to see the bathroom, it was the cleanest and the walls had the best wood grain paint

I love bringing people here because the food is great. The service is speedy and friendly. The in house made hot sauce is the best I have ever tasted, (only try if you like some heat). I'll continue to come back.

Overall the service was acceptable but not as good as it could have been. Food was hot and tasted great. Not as authentic as some other restaurants I've been to but it was tasty. My mother ordered a Long Island Iced Tea which came with orange juice and in her words was more like a "screwdriver" drink. I specifically ordered... More

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the area. I highly recommend their fajitas. Their cheese dip is delicious and their small size is huge. Their chips and salsa are great. Daily drink and food specials. A must go to!
