Coming from Southern California....this place has food that is well thought of in presentation. Prices range from $6.95 thru $14.00 and if you leave hungry...Your fault. They also have a Vegetarian section in their menu as well as a childrens section too. Will we be back to eat here? ABSOLUTELY!

The rice with my meal was amazing but the shrimp was over cooked and not much flavor. The margarita was delicious though!

The food is good and plentiful and the service is excellent. I enjoyed the salsa especially. I recommend for a quick meal after shopping at the mall.

The one type of food I always seek out on any trip has to be any type of Hispanic foods. I found plenty in South Korea so I was excited when I found this place. I had the chimichangas and they were right on time. They also had Jarritos, pronounce it like jalapeno, so that only made it more authentic.... More

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.
