Good not great. Extra money for Extra chips... not cool.

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... read 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.

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.

Reasonably priced, reasonably tasty food. Good fast service. Usually not much waiting to get a table. Family friendly.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The salsa is the best I've had anywhere. The chili rellenos is fabulous, full of flavor and cooked to perfection. My wife likes the taco salad. The portions are substantial and the price is very reasonable. We know several of the waitresses and have always had wonderful service, and the owner will often... More

The food here isn't stellar, but it's solidly good and an excellent value in a nice, relatively quiet restaurant with great service.
