“Four Happy People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This was the first visit for four of us and we were all very satisfied with the food. We each had different meals and each was very good. It's not a fancy place, just a nice neighborhood Mexican restaurant with pleasant decor and good room.
As with all Mexican restaurants we started with chips and salsa; the chips were thin and crisp, and the salsa tasted good without being too seasoned.
We'll be back.

“Amigo???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

The decor wasn't great, but the food was! This is the Mexican restaurant version of Cheers (the bar/sitcom). Everyone seems to know each other. I felt at home immediately! The chips and salsa were really good and fresh. The nachos were exactly as you would want. The cheese enchiladas were perfect. The price was very reasonable. If you want the real thing and to feel like an amigo, visit Norma!

“We're regulars !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

When I think about going out for home cooked Mexican food in a family atmosphere this is the first place that comes to mind. Ok... We're "regulars" and proud of it! The food is wonderful!!! The owners are friendly and the waitresses are precious! The bottomless basket of chips are warm, crispy and salted just right . The salsa is addicting! I love Norma's!

“Good, Fresh, and Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We are always searching for good Mexican food and this little place served great food. They not only have outstanding chimichangas which are large ,over stuffed, and crispy, they even offer a all grilled vegetable, spinach quesadilla. When asked, the wait staff was more than happy to modify ours without cheese and sour cream. We were afraid that our order would come to the table with the dairy products on it, which happens alot of times at other places, but it was made to our exact specifications here. Tasty, tasty. Service was a little slow, but I don't mind waiting if the end results are as good as this food was..and the chips and hot sauce make the waiting not so bad at all...we'll be here again.
