The tamales were awesome! Chili relleno very different, passably good, tostada mushy, no meat, but tasty. The wait staff was excellent and FAST! EXCELLENT price point. Maybe the best salsa ever ...light and fresh. .. good + guacamole. .. warm. .. light chips. Really good overall for a Mexican restaurant east of the Rockies. Despite the loudness of the place....

The service is fast and food arrives promptly. Order some queso to complement the salsa and chips. Lunch menu will not set you back any more than doing fast food; did I say it was all fresh and it beats any fast food I would care to try.

Food consistently good, great staff, very reasonably priced. Suggest the flautas or taco salads. Burritos are also very good. We do not drink, but our friends like the margaritas.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican, not Tex-Mex or Americanized Mexican, this is the place to go. Not a lot of cheese on their dishes, which is why it is more authentic. My wife loves this place, me not so much.

We stop here a couple times a month. We really like the food and extensive menu and at very reasonable prices. This is also a great place for kids...lots of booths and large tables and super fast servie allows us to get in and out quick. Try my favorite, tacos azada!
