I tried this place based on the reviews and was looking forward to some good Mexican food, but unfortunately that is not what I got. Everything was bland. The guacamole was simply mashed avocados and had nothing else in it. The steak fajita lacked seasoning and was also very bland. In addition, it did not even come in a skillet... More

The place was packed when we arrived and we were seated at a small table right in the middle and we felt we were in everyone's way who was coming or going. We were constantly... More

I've eaten authentic regional Mexican dishes in 4 Mexican states. I ordered the cowboy burrito. The beef was cooked but not properly rendered. Then it tasted as if week old fat renderings were drizzled back on before serving. My wife had fajitas that looked like chicken from a Chinese takeout dish. After I vomited after an hour of indigestion I... More

This restaurant is small, but the food and service are great. It's a BYOB. The food is delicious and the portions are generous.

Great food! Also, very big portions I could only eat half and took the rest home. Their food is authentic and delicious. Try the Cinco De Mayo platter, it was delicious. The town is worth visiting too, especially on a Saturday when the flea market is open.
