I'm sitting here on a lazy Sunday afternoon, eating at the bar, watching the Masters on TV.

It is nice to have a place to get good Mexican food locally without having to drive 30 miles. This is a regular lunch spot for me.

there were only a couple of people in the place... We had to place a to go order. We were SUPRISED how good is was.. We were taking the food back to several folks who were running a 24 hour race.. I told how many we were feeding, we had plenty. It was reasonable price as well.

We eat here sometimes and the food is good. The service is quick and the prices aren't bad. The salsa and chips are really good. I haven't had a bad meal there.

Good Mexican food even better service. large selection on the menu, something for everyone. I would have to say it's off the main traveled road and a little bit hard to find.
