Mexi-delight!

I have tried all the Mexican restaurants in the area...and for the money, this one is my favorite. Nice decor, nice folks, good/fresh food. Not fancy, not expensive....just good.

Great food, cold beer, what more can you want? Tortilla soup is always fantastic. My favorite thing is the surf and turf dip appetizer. Is is enough for a meal. Shrimp, chicken, beef, pico de gallo, cheese, and warm flour tortillas.

My husband and I went for lunch on Sunday afternoon around 12:45. We were immediately seated in this tiny restaurant with an amazing atmosphere. We had our drink orders taken and were brought some chips, salsa, and this amazing sweet cream sauce. The salsa was flavorful and the cream sauce was seasoned nicely. We ordered two Sol beers, carnitas (seasoned... More

Service is fast & friendly. The warm nachos and dip/salsa are served as quick as the drinks. Food is served in generous portions and prices are good. We have been there several times & never disappointed. We get regular coupons in Val-Pak, which is an added bonus.

Good food, good price, fun decor. Everyone nice, good customer service. We did not have to wait to be seated. The menu explains ingredients to help you order. I have been several times. Often taking someone that has not eaten there before and I think all of them have been back and introduced other friends.

Very happy with the food. Large portions and very tasty. One one of the four of us was able to eat it all. Chips were good but not unusual as some others had said. Dips were nice. I still can't place the sweet taste in the white sauce. I had the flautas and they were wonderful. Only down side was... More

We looked on Trip Advisor for local restaurants and this one showed up as number 1. It definitely deserves the rating. The food was excellent, the wait staff was attentive, the décor was nice. I absolutely LOVED the Charro beans. I believe they were the best I've ever had - if you are a bean lover, don't miss them.

Found this on my trip advisor app while on the road to NY. Staying at the Hilton Garden Inn. It's within walking distance. Great place for delicious food with huge portions and a yummy margarita. The chips come with salsa and the most delicious lemony lime cream dip. We also ordered quest fundido. No warm tortillas with this ally, you... More
