So far they are still open and doing a great job during their expansion

Good food, great service and now they are upgrading and expanding, while still dishing up great fare in a hurry!

We ate here during a recent visit with family. This is grim Mexican food. The cheese came from a bottle and all the food was super greasy. I would be very careful with what I ordered.

Someone brought us menus and warm tortia chips and salsa. I ordered the taco salad and my wife had the deluxe burrito. Our order arrived in less than... More
