Good Mexican

While certainly not the best Mexican I have eaten, this was a good place to eat. I had the combination Fajitas and was well pleased with my choice. The chips and mild salsa were quite good.

I ordered one veggie burrito and 1 chicken the chef put chicken in the veggie burrito as well. The chef was too lazy to make a veggie burrito. Don't expect high quality food from this local place.

I come here at least once a week. Best chips and salsa in the area and portions are large enough to feed two people. Bonus points -- patio seating!

A typical Mexican restaurant in suburbia, MS. The menu was large and complete, but I did not see any combination platters which my wife and I enjoy because you get several different flavors on one plate.
