The food here was great - we had a variety of dishes and all were very tasty (burritos, tacos, chimichanga, fried ice cream). Service was a tad bit slow, but otherwise, it's a place we'd recommend.

We had the nachos as a starter (they were okay). The rest however was great! We had a variety of burritos as well as the chimichanga. They hand you a home made jalapeño sauce if you like it more spicy. After some disappointing experiences with...More
