I've eaten here many times over the years they've been at this location, at first it was an awesome restaurant. I don't know if they've switched management but the food isn't what it used to be. The salsa is delicious. The ceviche has canned pineapple. I also had the avocado salad with grilled chicken - the chicken was rubbery. I'll... More

Talk about good cheap eats! All the chips and salsa you want, plus if you don't want alot you can get a sweet tea and a taco for $5. Management is so friendly too!

We had dinner here after a long day on the road. Our service was super; however, our food was just ok. We will give this restaurant a pass if visiting the area again.

We love this place. Service is always great. Food is delivered very quickly and it's always good. Prices are a tad higher than one or two other similar places but it's still worth it.

Wonderful traditional Mexican Fare - We eat here often. They have the best chicken tortilla soup I have ever had. Service is great too. We are picky about where we eat, so if we like it -it's good.
