Great little place that not everyone knows about. We love their steak tacos, enchiladas and chimichangas. Prices are reasonable and service is friendly. Great neighborhood restaurant. Daily specials on tacos and enchiladas for $2.00. One of our favorites!

The atmosphere is bad the decor is bad the service sucks the portions are small and plain! The chicken enchilada was good but everything else was poor! And its too pricey, the tacos are small and have no flavor. Would not recommend this place to anyone !
