Arrived around 12 on a Thursday for lunch. Seated immediately. It was our first visit. Wait staff was nice. Ordered lunch specials. Food came out super quick. Place seemed clean. Not going to cry about the charge for extra chips and salsa. It says it clearly on a placard on the... read more

I was very disappointed. Neither my adult son nor I enjoyed our meals. There was also a company meeting here. Again most were disappointed.

Been there many times, service is always prompt and friendly. If you like American style Mexican the food is excellent. The servings are generous, the fish and shrimp tacos are my favorite but I've never had anything I didn't like

This would be the only Mexican restaurant that my parents would go to. Nothing spicy. They have seven different choices of meat that you can have in your food, which is more than most Mexican restaurants, there just isn't much flavor to it. It seems to be a favorite for the older crowd though.

Went here with a pretty lady and we were seated quickly and received our free chips and salsa but no one ever came back. No glasses of water and no one asked if we wanted any other drinks. We waited for about 10 minutes and decided to leave. We went in after 8 pm on Saturday and it wasn't busy... More

Love this place. The food is great. The service is fast and friendly and the owner is a very gracious host. Our family's favorite place for great Mexican food. A big plus for us is that they're closed on Sunday. We love to support establishments that aren't afraid to hold true to their spiritual convictions.

Had family dinner there this week. The food was okay, but not great. Service was friendly and fast. There were seven of us and we ran out of chips quickly. I asked for 2 more servings of chips which were delivered with lightening speed. Was surprised to find I had to pay for the extra chips. I've never encountered that... More

This is definitely one of my very favorite Mexican restaurants!!! It is almost always our first choice when wanting Mexican food. Love the Chili Rellenos and Cheese Enchiladas!

We got the chicken burrito and the tostada salad. Both very tasty both very fresh. They give you one basket of chips than one cup of salsa. If you want more they charge. I wouldn't bother. The salsa just tasted of onions and the chips were nothing special. We ate all of our meals and it was a little much... More

Decent Mexican food, but the fact that you have to pay extra for another bowl of chips or salsa is a joke. They hardly give you any chips in the first place. Other than that, their food is average Mexican food, but the people are nice.
