“Hometown feeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Small hometown feeling in Cypress. Small but gerat food, and a feeling as if they have known you for years. Full bar at this small quint Mexican restaurant. Most of the guests are local residents due to the off beat location. Taco night is wednesday and is busy, a must try.

“Typical Good Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

I just love their chicken Chimichanga... Good salsa with homemade tortilla chips. My husband usually gets something different each time and it tastes always good.
Go for a lunch, your stomach will have more time to digest this delicious but a bit havy food :)))
