I am on a keto diet. A mexican restaurant is not the best place for this but most restaurants can adapt their meals, right? Not this one. The waitress couldn't understand enough English to understand that I didn't want anything with flour, corn or rice....More

Recently called in for dinner. Food was tasty, plentiful and served quickly with a smile. Add some cold beers and what more could you want? Price was reasonable for what you get.

Came to the restaurant on a whim to eat after a busy day for dinner. Received slow service (took 1 hr before food came), ok quality food. There was only one waitress but she appeared quite distracted. Would recommend alternatives if known.

Liked the decor of this place and the food came pretty promptly too. Unfortunately, service was slow and without personality. We waited ages to order, ages for food to be cleared, nobody asked if we wanted anything else and after even more time of waiting...More

Visited here with my partner. For a late dinner on a Wednesday night. We ordered corn chips with salsa and an extra side of quac. I love red onion in my quac, so I enjoyed this. The salsa was delicious. My partner had the two...More
