We have had the pleasure at eating at this place several times. We love the Chicken Enchilada and it's plenty of food for two people. Great chips and salsa, too. Great service, too!

As a recent vegan, I shared with my waiter, Jonathan that I was hoping for spicy veggie fajita. He even shared that their guacamole had a little sour cream and offered avocado as a substitute. The variety and quality of the veggies was second to none and the spicy salsa the chef used, was over the top tasty. Jonathan asked... More

I had a shrimp and crab enchilada and I forget what hubby had, but he cleaned his plate, it was very good, made from scratch, great waitress and located walking distance to the Holiday Inn express.

The food tasted great. They serve very good portions, with the flavor cooked into the food, not added with spices. The service was great.

This restaurant is gawdy! Memo to the owners: this is not authentic Mexican decor. Anyway, I have eaten here before and the food was fine. Recently, I had a Chimichanga with chicken. I wish I would have tried something else. My chicken was not seasoned and was wrapped inside a flour tortilla and grilled. Not at all what I was... More

The last time I visited here, I wasn't very impressed with the food. Just average. Tonight was much better. I ordered the bomba dip and couldn't get enough. I also had the soft tacos and the rest of the food everyone else ordered looked awesome. I will be back!

The staff is super friendly, the decor is unique and the restaurant is very clean. The food is good but nothing to write home about
