We have been eating here since if first opened many years ago. Because their lunch special averaged $5, they were affordable for a family of 6. Even further, on Wednesdays their lunch specials were $4. I have heard they recently increased their prices, which would bring them in line with Pancho Villa.

We were staying at the best western few minutes away by walk, we decided to go eat at that place. Nice place to eat, not expensive. Good quality and quantity for the price. Mexican food, many choices on the menu.

Very popular place for the $5 lunch special on Wednesday. Get there early as it is very busy. Food is good and the white salsa goes fast at your table so ask for two. You definitely try it.

The Mexican food served at this restaurant was very good. The flavor was authentic and the beans were great along with the dessert.

Have been a few times. This food is good and well priced for family dinners. The staff are ok most the time. But they never seem to understand when someone is in a rush to leave. It takes a long time to get the check once asked for. And longer time for them to pick up and run a card.

I stopped in for one of the numerous $6.75 lunch specials. I picked the Enchiladas Supreme. It had one cheese and one chicken enchilada with sour cream. It came with lettuce and sour cream. There were wonderful salsa and chips. Service was excellent. Food was good. Decor was festive.

I went here first time with friends and really did not know what to order but my friends helped me. I will say the food was good and hot. Not spicy hot. The place was very clean and nicely decorated. We also enjoy having the flan for desert. I will tell others to come here for real Mexican foods.

I come here regularly and for good reason. Delicious food at prices that make it easy to fill up. Love their chips and salsa as well as the queso dip! Forgot the others in the area this is the better choice.
