My favorite Mexican restaurant. Good delicious food at a very fair price. Quick service. The only downside is the noise and the long wait for a table

The food is absolutely the best I have ever eaten. Mexican , Cajun , S.W. American food. It is a long wait if you go late but if you get there early , you get a table . Quick !! Great drinks , Great atmosphere. Carve your name in the table. It is allowed !! I just LOVE this place.
