Definitely for the family!

This is a great place to take the family for a delicious and affordable meal. Dinners are served hot and special requests are honored. There are also good vegetarian selections. Don't pass this treasure up!

Always have a good meal here, tastes like good, made by scratch food. And, the people who run it are very friendly and accommodating. Wish they were still open for lunch...

Very nice people, guacamole made by a young girl, maybe a neice of the owner. All she wants is to help and learn the business. Sweet, and very business like. Made the best guacamole ever! Food was good, prices reasonable. Highly reccomend a visit here.

Delicious Mexican cuisine from the usual to Gourmet dishes. Don't miss the table side made guacamole. Last time a very polite and motivated young girl made ours just perfect.

We went on a Monday evening, family of four. Service was exceptionally slow considering it was just us and three other tables full. Margaritas were okay, nothing special. The food was not good.

My family and out of town guests really enjoyed the staff, atmosphere, and food. Salsa is homemade and delicious. Everyone raved about their meals. I especially like the staff, owners have many family members involved and you can tell how much they value their customers and take pride in their restaurant.
