Delicious!

I'll be the first to admit I wasn't so sure about this place when it opened, but the food is amazing and the staff are so welcoming! Everything was clearly freshly made. I highly recommend the fajitas!

Three of us got a huge burrito with rice and beans and one got two good-sized chimichangas with rice and beans. Everything was delicious! I thought the... More

Just as the food is authentic, so is the service. I would have given this place 5 stars if it wasn't for the furnishings (which are in bad need of a face lift). I enjoyed the food so much here I was ready to call Diners, Drive Ins & Dives!!!! There were 5 of us so we had the wonderful... More

Where to begin... It took 15 minutes till anyone even approached our table. The hostess gave us some tasty taco chips and salsa, but no one offered a beverage until 30 minutes passed. By that time, we were very thirsty. A very nice waitress took our orders, and when my husband ordered a combination platter, she said that it would... More

A quaint little restaurant with great Mexican food. The salsa they provide for free is SPICY but yummy. We're used to bland where we live. My husband had the Wet Burrito and it was HUGE.

Great Mexican food with very large portions. We ordered fajitas and one order would have been sufficient for the two of us to share. Parking is a bit of a challenge due to the location with a small parking area, but well worth the effort. Wait staff were very friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

Went to 5 de Mayo again since I was in the area and this place never disappoints! The food is authentic and delicious! You get a huge portion of food for the price, and the staff are all very friendly and polite! This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants!

It is a small establishment, but very welcoming. It was late and I was tired, but the pleasant way the staff welcomed me took away all my tiredness. The food was good; they checked often if I needed anything. Highly recommended.
