The food is good but not great, the service is great, the restaurant is clean, and the food comes out very fast. I always get the same thing at a Mexican restaurant -- a chili relleno. The ones here are okay. What I don't like is that they don't clean the pepper first. The seeds are no big deal, but... More

We live within 15 minutes of this place and frequently eat here. The fish tacos are very good as are the chimichangas and most everything else. The queso dip is great! If you are paying with a card make sure you tip with cash. Somehow the staff are altering the written tips and bumping the amount up by anything from... More

Got the burrito Mexicano. It has just about everything in it. Take out was fast and they added chips to the order. Good Mexican food at reasonable prices with friendly service.

We visited the restaurant during their Cinco de Mayo celebration, and there were great deals to be had. They had 99 cent taco, 99 cents tequila shots, and $2.99 margaritas. The chips were hot, toasty, and delicious; and the salsa was very fresh. They also have a ranch/white sauce for chips - yum. Portions are about average although people with... More

I love the white dipping sauce for the chips. The lunch specials are incredibly inexpensive, but the food is excellent. The service is quick.

We go to dinner on average once per week. Thursday is Margarita night and their's can't be beat! When the chips and salsa are good it's a good sign that the food will be also. I love their tacos al pastor! They taste like the street tacos I've eaten all over Mexico. If you haven't tried it yet go on... More
