We were out at the Ontario Antique Mall and I noticed this place on the way there. We stopped for dinner on Saturday night about 4:45 PM and the place was already 3/4 full. The staff was great. I liked how it didn't matter who our waitress was, all of the staff poured water and made sure the chips and... More

Lunch was fast almost too fast. Big open room with not very much charm. The food was good and presentation was average. If you are looking for a quick and no frills lunch that is not a chain burger joint, this is the place.

We stopped here because of the reviews on here. The service was very good and the restaurant itself was nice. The menu sounded great but when we got our food it was just OK. Nothing fresh and everything was deep fried and greasy. We ordered the sampler appetizer to try some variety and it was pretty funny, one of the... More

I have Celiac disease and wanted a place to eat that I wouldn't get sick at. I have to say, our waitress was wonderful and seemed to be running the place. The food was delish!! Fresh and good!! I would recommend this place to anyone.

We always like to try different Mexican restaurants. We heard from a friend that the food was great here so we decided to give it a try. It was a busy Saturday & we waited about 20 minutes to be seated. They brought the drinks & chips & salsa right away. The salsa was extremely salty. I have been to... More

This place is a nice little Mexican restaurant with very good food. There was no wait because there are plenty of tables and seats. It has a bar as well and the staff was mostly family, so it felt very much like home. I will be eating here again.
