Good Mexican Fod

We always eat here on our way to or from a show at CCU. The food has always been good. The service is very prompt even when there are quite a few people there.

Don't be put off by the exterior. Menu extensive. Food home cooked and delicious. Service excellent. One of the best Mexican meals I've had. Can't wait to go back.

We love this popular place. The food is wonderful and fresh. The service is great. They recently remodeled the main dining room and it looks great. We have been here many times, tried a lot of items, and loved them all.
