The food is Americanized for sure and is average....But, they do have really good Fajitas! I go there just for those. The staff is friendly and courteous.

If you don't want to drive to the city and want some of the best Mexican food around, I can highly recommend this place. The waitstaff is attentive and courteous. The food is authentic and off the charts, well managed.

The service here is very good and the atmosphere is what I expected. The food, however, leaves something to be desired. My plate contained refried beans, which seems to be the staple on each order.
