“Excellent fresh Mexican food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

Very traditionally Mexican with fresh ingredients and classic techniques. Great value and pleasant service. Would recommend that the owner removes the candy sale in the front of the store and replaces it with fresh flowers, maybe even fresh flowers on the tables. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is dragging it down.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

I love this restaurant so much, I think I eat here once a month or more. the food is always the same, which I like, and it ia alkays good. The prices are very reasonable. The waiters are great at their job, even if they don't speak the best english. I love the peach frozen margaritas too! You should eat here. A lot.

“Always good”

They have very goos salsa and food. Sometimes the service has been a little slow but we still go on occasion. We seem to frequent Good Tequilas more. Service is much better.

“GREAT Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

This is some of the best Mexican I have sampled outside of Mexico! Service is terrific. It's not fancy, but the outdoor seating is very nice on a warm evening!
