Delicious authentic mexican food! We've tried many many things & have never had anything that we didn't like! Love the lunch buffet & the prices are great!

Stopped there before a show at Rascals Live. Good local place with decent authentic Mexican food. Quantities are sufficient and prices are realistic. Service was quick and efficient, we will be back
