I've eaten here many, many times but I always get the same thing because it's the best: Carne Asada. Whatever secret seasoning they use on the meat is fantastic. I've tried to no avail to duplicate it at home which is why I keep coming back. They also have amazing pinto beans. Mix in the salsa with the beans and... More

I have eaten here several times with my husband's family, and have enjoyed it most of the time. I really like the taco salad and the carne asada plate. They bring you free chips and salsa and beans to eat while you wait for your food. I've never had beans with my chips and salsa and its very good. We... More

Walking along a counter ordering the things you want is a little weird, but okay. Food was very good, fresh and most of all tasty! People were friendly and very helpful. Wasn't busy when we went. Bought a salad and split it. Plenty for both of us.

This place, like most in the area, is your average Mexican restaurant. It will not blow your socks off, but they are consistent. They have a lot of choices and you will not leave hungry. The amount of food you get for your buck is good, but that is true of all the other Mexican joints in town. We go... More

We have eaten here several times. It is a nice clean family-friendly place with booth seating and friendly and fast servers. It has a large bar area. The food is fairly standard Mexican but uniformly bland and somewhat uninteresting. It's a good place to get a fast Mexican food fix at a reasonable price, but if you are looking for... More

Fajitas, enchiladas, carne asada, and chile verde are super tasty! Also the fried ice cream is the best I have ever had!! If you like Mexican food... More

If I am in the mood for good chips and salsa, then this is the place! Also, I love that they serve the chips and salsa with warm complimentary bean dip! Yum, yum! My husband loves the Carne Asada and it seems that every other man in the restaurant is ordering the same thing. :) I enjoy their shredded beef... More
