I love bringing my friends here! Every time the food is delicious and the service is great! Everyone that works there is so friendly. Everything is great here but my favorites are the enchiladas with the rice and beans on the side. It is kind of a small restaurant so I would definitely recommend reservations.

Four of us had lunch here, and every dish was excellent. We shared the guacamole appetizer, which was in a chunky style and tangy with onion and lime juice. Salsa and chips also were first rate. A lunch special of fried egg on shredded chicken and taco slices was something different. Dining companions praised the carnitas and pulled pork enchiladas.... More

The atmosphere, décor, service, and food were exceptional. Added to that there was ample, $5 parking just around the corner. Oh, and the restaurant deducted the parking fee from our bill. This was our first visit here and definitely not our last!

Was in town Saturday to visit our son. Place was very beautiful. The Host was a super friendly gentleman and actually let us choose where we sat. Sat in the bar area and had the bartender as our server and he recommended really good food and drinks and was very social. The place was busy but not overly crowded but... More
