A group of us go out to restaurants about once a week and we visit this one regularly. The nacho Grande lives up to 'Grande' and is very good. So is their Combination Plate. The staff is quick to serve and the food comes out in about 15 minutes. We have never been disappointed here.

My boyfriend and I went here when he came to visit because he loves Mexican food and we really enjoyed it. The food was more of your traditional Mexican food and tasted great while being inexpensive.
