Good service, good food, reasonable prices; a viable spot to get your Mexican food fix. Busy location so be prepared to wait for a table but its worth the wait. While not my favorite local Mexican restaurant, it didn't disappoint. Go and enjoy!

This recently moved to larger quarters, and every night we drove by the parking lot was packed. So we went for a late lunch/ early dinner around 3:30. It was still crowed. They start you off with chips and salsas 2 kinds one very spicy, the other not spicy at all. - both very good. The food was well prepared... More

We went here after some friends went on and on about how great it was and we were HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED! Really the whole experience was horrible from the unfriendly hostess who acted like she did not want to be there to trying to get our check. We went on a Thursday evening around 7:30 and waited about 20 minutes for... More

I've eaten at the new location 5 times now and haven't had a bad meal yet. My wife and daughter always like the ACP, I've had the chimichangas, burritos, fajitas and the "authentic" tacos. I get them on flour and "La Unica" style. The Pastor is the best. It has some pineapple mixed in with the salty pork that really... More

Service was great. We were in and out quickly. $8 for 3 small enchiladas. Inside was clean. This place is always packed as I drive by. Not sure why though. I like it just as much as any other Mexican food place.

The new location is a winner. Service remains great along with the food (favorite is the cheese steak burrito) but the seating is so much better. Don't let a tight parking lit scare you away, they have more space inside than the lot can support giving you plenty of seating options. Great menu options and staff that treats you like... More
