Went eat with friends that had already eaten there..This was my first time & I have to say..it was really good & there's plenty of lunch specials to choose from..There was so much food, some of us had to get a to-go box to take the leftovers home. I would recommend this restaurant..

The salsa is really good. The margaritas are HUGE! The entire staff is Mexican and are really nice. I get the same meal each time I go, which is the "old Mexican steak" it is awesome!!
