“Best Fajitas ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The service in this small restaurant is awesome. Everyone who comes by your table is always checking to see if you need anything. The fajitas come straight off the grill and to your table still sizzling. An order for one can easily feed to people. The meat is tender and the vegetables still have a little bit to them. This is all served with proper fixing as well as rice and beans. You cannot eat just one!

“Good Food and Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Excellent Mexican food. Service can be a bit slow, but on the whole is okay. Salsas and chips are free with every dinner. Just about everything on the menu is great. Carne Asada is outstanding as is any shrimp dish. We go there regularly and have tried most things on the menu. We bring out of town guests and people who say they think Mexican food is bland. This ain't Taco Bell.
