Great Mexican Food!!

The food is wonderful. Unlike many Mexican restaurants, everything tastes different - it's not just chili peppers and jalapeños. The specials really are special and the chicken or spinach enchiladas are the best! The chili relleno is huge and so tasty. The salsa could use a bit of heat, but the... read more

We get tired of the other 'chain' Mexican places, so we have started going here and have been thrilled! The salsa is a little smokey and they have those nice thin chips, yummy! We all ordered different things and everybody tried everybody's meals. I have to say, of course the fajitas are our favorite, but my kids love their burrito's... More

It is a neighborhood restaurant so we have been going there periodically for years. We keep trying other Mexican restaurants but haven't found one that is better and their prices are higher. While not to Texas or California Mexican food standards it is pretty good for Virginia.

Mediocre neighborhood Mexican restaurant. The chile relleno was unremarkable, limp, and tasteless; taco shells tasted as if they were from a package, and not freshly prepared in the kitchen. Shrimp fajitas were acceptable; as was the salsa. Service was fine; except we needed to ask for ice tea, salsa, and chip basket refills.

We had a large group, eight people. The service was wonderful, the food excellent and the prices very reasonable. I was so happy they had tamales, which I love, but very few Mexican restaurants offer them. We had small children and they had a very good kids menu. The sangria was great.

We can't wait to see you and the kiddos again soon!... More

Have been there several times and would return even if it wasn't the closest restaurant to my house. Good variety of choices and nothing isn't good (although some things are better than others, but that is a matter of personal choice too).

Stopped while on business trip. Unfamiliar with the area. Good parking. Clean looking place. Hostess promptly greeted us. They have a rather extensive menu. Lunch selections are at the back. The Sunken Burrito was pretty tasty and filling. One member if our group doesn't care for Mex food but he found a Ranch Burger that he liked. Prices are reasonable... More

My girlfriend and I come here often and always get enchiladas. I usually get the crab and shrimp. Last night I wanted to try something different and chose your a la carte Taco version instead. Wow, I was highly impressed! The smoky taste of the grilled shrimp was delicious. Great portion sizes and quality for the price. Think I will... More

We arrived late, close to closing time on a weeknight. We were seated and assured that the entire menu was available. Our waiter was prompt and she was delightful.
