Always Great Service and Food

One of the best places in the State for true Mexican food. The service is always exceptional and the food is consistently good. Worth the trip to get here. We drive 80 miles to go here.

From my previous review, I mention that the beef seemed to have changed in a downward fashion. Seems it was a one-time event as the problem has never reoccured. We dine there frequently and the food is always excellent. The staff is wonderful and very efficient. As for the remodeling, fantastic! I don't know if it is because we are... More
