We absolutely love this place! The owner is so nice to greet and serve us! She even remembers what we usually order! Drinks are strong, and food is great! Definitely recommend this to anyone who happens to be in town!

We are two couples who had not spent much time together for years. We couldn't have picked a better spot for eating, enjoying fine wines and reconnecting. Because there were four of us, we were able to try dish after dish after dish. And they all just kept getting better and better. I think the Chili Prawns were our favorite!... More

The ingredients they use are of a good quality. Lots to choose from on the menu. Food was served within a reasonable time. Chicken enchiladas were a bit dry and could have used more sauce. Fish tacos had battered-dipped fish...not described that way on the menu and it should be! Overall service was barely acceptable. Waitress never came back to... More

A group of 8 of us had dinner there the first week of June. Place was busy for a Tuesday early evening. We were visiting from out of state with local friends. Service was excellent considering how busy they were. The chips and salsa we quickly replenished and the drinks were very good. Had large combination dinner with two types... More

Great food, large portions and reasonably priced. Party of five and all were happy with their food. This is good authentic Mexican food. The margaritas were really really good.

When we want Mexican food this is the place. The food is consistently good food and the price does not put you in shock. We usually do fajitas for two. It is not a place that you go for special occasions but if you are looking for a good dinner I would recommend it.

This is a well equipped Mexican restUrNt. Very nice staff the food is good and one of the best margaritas ever. Even better than Mexico. Family oriented and very untuned with special requests for those of who need no cheese or extra sour cream. Eat Local it's great
