Let's face it how many ways can you fix retried beans? We had a family plate dinner, it had pork chunks, tough steak strips, chicken strips, nine shrimp and maybe a tablespoon of chirios and some veggies.a lot of food but so much grease. maybe as you get older tolerating grease is harder, but no matter what I eat there...

We go here at least one a week. My son loves that he can get grilled chicken with rice and cheese. I have yet to find anything bed on the menu. Portion size is unreal. I always leave with a box of food that I have for lunch the next day. The chips are freshly made and come out warm... More

The decorations really fascinated me, but the staff was so friendly, and the food was delicious. Thr price was not too high. We ordered the Fajitas for two, and they put so much on the plate, we had enoug left over to take home for the puppy. Wonderful Mexican food.

Ordered chicken fajita nachos, chicken wasn't cooked done and shortly after taking one bite I noticed the raw meat, they took it back and must have put it in the microwave because you could tell it was the same plate of food. Whatever spice they put on it made me sick, the bathroom and I became close friends for two... More

We stopped here for lunch and we were VERY impressed with the food and the pricing. The salsa is YUMMY. $7.99 dinner plates are very filling. Took some home for lunch!

Food was excellent - very authentic. Chips and salsa were brought out before our food. Server was slow at taking our order and even slower at bringing our check to the table. We saw him numerous times on his cell phone texting and even taking personal phone calls. He walked past our table several times when we were waiting on... More

The best Mexican food ever. We haven't at the other place in town in over 3 years. The food is always hot, salsa is just perfect. The staff does an awesome job everytime. I can't say enough great things about this place.
