We're from the Midwest so maybe we're not the best judges of Mexican food but we thought food was good. Service was good also. I'm not giving this 5 stars as I didn't think it was memorable but thought overall it was good.

I really enjoyed this place. I've been here twice and enjoyed both visits. I love their salsa and green sauce and they were very generous with chips. you know you're in the right place when everyone around you is local.

Not a destination restaurant. Our waiter was a very nice and energetic young man. The menu is typical and the food plentiful but not memorable. The surrounding seemed a little cluttered and not spotless clean. Drinks were just okay as was the food. Probably won't go here again.

Very inexpensive lunch menu and the food was good. It just happens to be surrounded by great mexican food so its hard to rate any higher than a 3 out of 5. Still try it.....

AVOID! We ordered the fajitas. For $13.95 they should have been made to order. Not something that had been made previously, and re-heated, then served on a cold platter. The tortillas were tough. The rice and beans were good. We ate the rice and beans, complained to the manager. They gave us half off. Generous. NOT! I had out-of-town visitors.... More

Don't bother to stop here. Prices are high and quality is poor.The fajitas are like shoe leather if you sit some meat otherwise it's gristle. This was not my first time getting this I gave them 3 tries before giving up. They were good a few years ago but not now.

In a tiny strip mall; the décor is classic Mexican diner, and the service is cheerful. We had two types of carne asada, the chunk and dry shredded kinds, and bot were flavorful and enjoyed. They have quite good guacamole here.

This is a Western theme Mexican restaurant in a commercial neighborhood. The menu is large with quite a few steaks as well as normal Mexican items - plenty to choose from. We've eaten here a number of times and like the menu and the food is always good. One of the best (and most surprising) things we've had at this... More

This is our all time favorite Mexican restaurant on the planet. It is a local favorite and the one locals recommend to out of towners. We eat here every single time we are in town. If you have never had refriend beans, tortillas and eggs for breakfast then you have to try it here! It is a family run restaurant... More
