The Menu has a good Vegetarian section. When I walked it I took a menu and told the server that I planned to get take out, he showed me to a seat so I could sit and review the menu; there's a +1. point for him. I had a little trouble asking him if one of the desserts would be... More

I've gone to this restaurant many times, both for lunch and dinner, so have seen the ups and the downs. By and large the food is good while the service ranges from adequate to very good. The portions are nice and the cheese dip is one of the best around. I keep coming back, yet it still seems to lack... More

We ate at this Mexican reastaurant one evening while on a family vacation last week. It was located in a plaza and we just happened to come across it while driving looking for stores and restaurants.

We ordered takeout after a long day of travelling. My husband said despite a packed restaurant the order was promptly filled. We both enjoyed our meals (quesidilla and chimichanga), and the side of rice was tasty and generous. The guacamole salad was delicious and we enjoyed the salsa and queso dip! Can't wait to go back and enjoy dining in... More

It is just down the street and a regular stop for us. My favorite starter is the fresh guacamole. I have never had a bad dish since dining here. The last I tried was a seafood plate with tilapia, scallops and shrimp over rice.
