“Food is better than the decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The food was good. We had fajitas and chile rejennos with shrimp. The atmosphere could use a little work. The fluorescent lights were too bright for my taste but the service was prompt and the food was good. The restaurant was clean and the house salsa was excellent. Half price margaritas on Mon and Tues.

“Delicious and excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012 via mobile

I go here for lunch often and the food is fantastic and a great value. The chips and salsa provided before the meal are tasty and a nice service to provide.

“Good food for area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

I haven't found a better Mexican restaurant in a radius of 60 miles plus in any direction. We had a good lunch here. Reasonable prices and large portion sizes.
