Fast service and plenty of room on a busy day. Band playing music all day and the food is good quality at a reasonable price. We have been there two years in a row and enjoyed the visit.

An outstanding value for the price, with generous portions. The staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. Daily specials that on the right day include great deals on Margaritas, which are excellent. If your looking for a place to hang out with a few friends, have a meal and a few Margaritas without breaking your back this is it.

The atmosphere is not much, the dining room is a nice size with TVs. Lots of booths. Service is prompt. The food is average but well priced.

Although this place can be hard to find, it is worth looking for. They offer the standard Mexican Menu. The Staff is helpful and friendly. The standouts are the bean dip and the Fried Pork Entree.
