The girls at work ordered from here the other day. I inquired, as I had never eaten there On the way home I picked up a whole chicken and some sides for family dinner. Although the kids thought the chicken was a little spicy, they knocked off the whole thing! Very tasty, and inexpensive for an entire meal. Only down... More

The food's a good gringo varient on mexican food. Reasonable prices and a varied menu. The place is clean and hygienic. Spices are severely compromised which cuts the heart out of Mexican food but a good selection of sauces are available. Take out and delivery service is horrible. Deliveries take forever and something is alway screwed up or missing.

...a bit heavy handed on the salt. I really like this place and they do a great job and offer a good value, but if only they'd use less salt and let the ingredients simply speak for themselves, they'd reach another level and surely more customers. I recommend you try this place and see for yourself - you may not... More

Both mexican and tex-mex BBQ are excellent and fresh. The service is fast, friendly, and efficient. The food is always fresh and delicious! Great dishes are cheese enchiladas, vegetable and black bean burrito, BBQ chicken, corn bread and chips and salsa. Everything is so good!!! A must try. Fast delivery too! A+++ The best in the area!
