Good but but needed more flavor.

Had the chilli relleno with an enchilada. The enchilada was on the bland side. The atmosphere was pleasant. The servers very polite.

This isn’t the best Mexican restaurant you will ever visit but it is a very consistent “B” restaurant that deserves your patronage. The team here is very focused on serving good food quickly and at a great price. If you are passing through, or live around here, this is a place you need to visit.

We tried this place last year and it has become our favorite Mexican place for good food and drinks...The staff are nice and helpful. It is not fancy but very good for couples or families. It can be very busy but worth the wait...

This is the place were we go to with our kids. Birthdays, college admissions, graduations all have been celebrated here. Food is great, staff is better! They will make food to order per request. No problem with substitutions. They have amazing salsa and white sauce. Prices are reasonable.

Service was fast, efficient and very friendly. The menu is huge and the variety is incredible so there truly is something for everyone so this place is sure to please all palettes.

I thought this was going to be another Mexican joint. It is in many ways but the big difference is the food is much better. The cocktails are pricey and but they do the job right! The food everyone loved and I would definitely go back again. I wouldn't drive out of my way to seek out this place though.
