Great food

We arrived four minutes before closing, but the staff happily served us. We ordered green chili and a combo plate which was more than enough food for two. None of the food was too salty or oily, which can easily happen with bad Mexican food. Great flavor in the enchilada. The salsa for... read more

This was by far the worst Mexican food I have ever encountered. The tacos had unseasoned ground beef and the enchildada had wierd nacho seasoning. The salsa was like eating tamoto I paste. We didnt even eat more then a few bites and left.

This has been a staple restaurant for my family and I for years. It is family owned and operated. Great food and service. Lots of choices. Salsa is the best! Great place for drinks as well.

Loved it! Family owned and operated for 3 generations. The food is basic and down home delicious. The bar was well stocked and the kids welcome. Their fried ice cream was the best I've ever had.

We ordered two beef tostado plates with rice and beans, guacamole, chips, and tea. When I went to the drink fountain to get tea, the dispenser was empty. I asked if they had any more tea. The lady said she could make some if I really want it. I drank water. When the food came there was one tostado plate... More

The service is excellent, the Margaritas are refreshing and the food is delicious. I especially an enchanted by their signature dish, the pork chile. The enchiladas and hard shell tacos are... More

I haven't been in there since they remodeled. It is possible I could give it another chance. I didn't like the way it was set up and felt it was crowded.

This place is way over priced, food is bland, and service is non existent. The ordering process is more like fast food, where you serve yourself. This is NOT authentic mexican food.
