Bad, greasy mexican food. Booths are horribly uncomfortable, they do have outside seating so that's a plus. Not sure how much of a bonus that is considering the location. I definitely wouldn't recommend this one.

Service is very good. The food is average and the margaritas are too sweet. I had the tamale and enchilada combo. The tortillas were not homemade.

The service is good, the staff are friendly and polite but the food is subpar. Nothing extraordinary to write about, greasy and lacking flavor.

Small and cozy but lacks charm. Service is quick and friendly but food is unremarkable. Huge menu choice. I recommend the Chimichanga. They do have a liquor license - margaritas are good.

" I promise You" was what out hostess said when asked if we would like an item on the menu. She was right. The food was authentic and very good.
