In response to this review I am going to say that this is an un-true statement. This customer came in with his family and ordered a lot of food. They ate almost all of it and then announced to the entire restaurant that there was a roach in their food. Luis, my manager and server, came over to the table... More

We've been here multiple times, and we never fail to receive great service and great food. I especially appreciate that this is one place I can get a flavorful, baked, vegetarian Mexican dish (the Chile Rellenos - the cactus in it MAKES the dish!) that won't make me sick with grease or blow my nutrition. Rather than the greasy, smelly... More

Clean. Courteous wait staff. I had a steak burrito meal. Quite tasty. The rice was a bit bland and dry for my taste but I like sticky Japanese rice. Less than $20 with tip.

There menu reflects authentic Mexican without Americanizing the choices. They will make any adjustments and often we say "surprise us" with a new idea.

If you are looking for gringo food, this isn't it. I live close to a highly Latino community, and this is pretty authentic, retooled just a bit for American taste buds. But not so fine tuned that is loses it's heritage. My husband isn't a huge Mexican food fan, but he hasn't quit raving about his lunch yesterday!

Excellent quality food and awesome margaritas. I am not normally a fan of Mexican, but this place has very well prepared dishes with excellent fresh flavor. Prices are very reasonable. Not a fancy place, but just very high quality food. Third time there and thought it deserved a review.
