“Good food, low prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

This is a place many locals go for good food at low prices. They are best know for their ribs and chicken although they have other mexican dishes that are quite good. The atmosphere is not what you go for. you go for a good meal at very good prices. The service is fast too!

We often go to the movie over on the third floor of the Paradiso Mall with a group of friends and then go here for dinner afterwards. It handles a large group well!

“Good food, low prices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Try the roasted chicken here. It is served quickly and hot. The food is good and the prices are low. Service is fine, but it's not fancy, a local spot that is nice and clean.

“locals place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Extremely good ribs, arrachera, and chicken. Orange soda homemade and like the corner drug store in the 1960's. This place is not fancy and is for meat lovers. Drinks, meal, and 20% tip $7.50USD.
