Excellent service, Tex-Mex staples

This place came highly recommended by some locals, and our friends told us the spinach enchiladas set the standard for that particular dish. We visited for lunch, and were not disappointed. We started with the queso, which was tasty but disappointingly yellow. It seems to be a thing around... read more

I really enjoy eating here. Myself and others from work meet here for lunch every now and then and we always leave satisfied. Great fajitas and the staff are very attentive, I have never had to wait or wonder where my waiter is. Very friendly staff, great food, and great prices.

Loved the food. I asked the server to suggest something instead of picking something from the menu. He asked me a couple of questions, then brought me the best dish. Loved it. Filling. Fresh ingredients. I stayed across at the Quality Suites so it was easy to walk over for diner.

If you want some basic Tex Mex, this could be your stop. Plenty of chips and salsa, good drinks and enchiladas, fajitas, etc.

I enjoyed my meal here. The food was tasty, and the staff was attentive. This is a family owned restaurant, and you could tell that they care about their customers. By the way, the margarita was also great.

I love this place. Been going here for over 20 years. Even if it's been a year since I last went they ALWAYS without fail know what I like to eat. They remember that I always order a beef burrito with chili gravy a la carte and a bowl of bean soup. Been ordering the same thing forever. It just... More

The service is great, the food is awesome, atmosphere is sit down dining, family run style restaurant. I had the KING KONG BURRITO, don't order this dish unless you brought your appetite. A... More
