Great food, good service and reasonable prices! You won't go wrong here. There margaritas are a tasty and delicious complement to your meal.

I was givena dirty menu and asked for another. The waitress took it and another person brought back the same dirty menu. Finally got one that wasn't covered in salsa. Food was average and kind of on the bland side. Restaurant was packed, so the locals must really like it.

Good Mexican food at a good value. Nothing bad to say, just above average Mexican in an unlikely location.
