I have not been here in a while so I decided to stop and get some fajita nachos. The chicken had a funny taste to it. I think it was old and they were trying to cover up the taste with cheese. I took a few bites and decided to eat just the chips and cheese and leave the chicken.... More

Found this place by accident and so glad we did. Very much worth the money! Food was very very good. Authentic! We are very picky when it comes to Mexican food and this place did not disappoint. Read previous review and I've always payed for chips for pick up at many many restaurants so no big deal. Will be back... More

When you place a phone order do NOT expect chips to go with it. Oh--you can BUY a bag for $1.50, but a small amt. will not come with your order. IF I go back I will sit down,,place my order...get my chips (FREE) with my meal....put it all in a To-Go box...and come home. It's a shame that I... More

I have eaten here many times and took my wife for the first time. Not a complaint from us. Even my picky 3 year old found something to eat. The plates were full of food and we both ate way to much. It was to good to stop. Service was great and the server checked on us often.

You can't get better south of the border food anywhere in this area. Been eating here for many years and just keep coming back for my Mexican food fix. The lunch plate specials just can't be beat for the price and the beans are to die for. This place is always packed with the locals because they know a great... More

We are regular Sunday morning breakfast burrito customers. A burrito supreme is less than $4 and big enough that I've never been able to eat it in one sitting. The breakfast supreme plate is also delicious and has eggs scrambled with ham, potatoes, green peppers, and served with refried beans, cheese, and hand made flour tortilla. This is a real... More

can be very good or terrible. When complaints are made to management (by women mostly) they are treated as if they are of no value or importance to the management. They just shrug their shoulders as if they could care less about what you have to say. They change items on their menus, ... serving whatever the cheapest ingredients (cheese... More
