Very Good Mexican

Nice atmosphere, good service. Food is prepared fresh. Excellent flavors. Very good salsa. Bonus, you can go to The Beer Store next door, fill a growler and bring it over to drink with lunch/dinner. Then return the Growler n/c.

Went there for lunch recently. The place was empty, with few takeouts, otherwise crickets. They offer a lunch menu, but the prices don't seem to be reduced from the regular menu. Before we were given menus were offered chips and salsa, and we said sure. They (small portion) were $5.50 and no refills were offered. Oh, it did come with... More

I visited for the first time with a friend and the food was very good, and authentic Mexican. The service was excellent! Two things kept me from giving this restaurant five stars. The restaurant layout and atmosphere were nondescript. Also, chips and salsa are not provided for free like most Mexican restaurants. Adding $4.95 for the chips and salsa seemed... More

My mom and I ate here on a whim when we were in town doing some shopping. The place isn't much to look at - it is in a strip mall and doesn't have much in the way of ambiance, but the food makes up for it! The service was excellent, too. We ordered guacamole, which was absolutely delicious. I... More

You will find the tacos and burritos, but they also do a really nice mole and a couple of other sauces you can select for your meal. They have quality meat and a really nice staff. This is the third Mexican Restaurant to be at this location, and this one is a winner. If you love Mexican food, you will... More

This is a small restaurant with friendly staff and attentive service. The menu is extensive and the food is well presented and served quickly. We will certainly go back.

I enjoy the food here very much. The people are always kind and helpful. My only complaint is that they only give 3 tiny tortillas with my favorite dish, the chicken fajitas and very tiny portions of the sour cream, cheese and tomatoes/lettuce. I mostly order and pay for extras but when I forget...it's a bummer. With tortillas this small,... More

Based on the positive reviews on-line, we decided to have lunch here today. For the price, you get a lot of food. The wife had fish tacos and the kids shared a beef taco. Both were excellent. The fish was fresh and perfectly cooked. The beef was well seasoned and juicy. The rice and beans that came with the dishes... More

This is the most authentic mexican in the area! I'm Mexican, so I know! The flautas are awesome! my husband and I work in the area and go just about every Friday. Jessie knows us by name and is very sweet. The service is always excellent, the place is always clean, and the prices are reasonable.
