Taking the family here for more than a decade. Their beans, amazing! They have mariachi bands here at times too! Love it.

The food is always fantastic. The enchilada sauce is the best I have ever had. I could drink it!! Food is consistent between locations and visits. Portions are generous. Prices between $7 and $13. One of my favorite local places.

Lunch visit on a Sunday. Salsa w/chips were very good. Tried the Combo plate with chicken enchilada, beef taco, beef flauta. All were tasty with the flauta being my unexpected favorite. $2 upcharge for the chicken vs cheese enchilada (which they did not mention). Service was adequate. Beer was just cooler than warm. No A/C but lots of fans and... More

My uncle's crispy tacos were good, and my aunt enjoyed her chile relleno, though she was surprised to see seeds in it. My carnitas (shredded pork) was very dry, as if it had been in the hopper for a while. Desserts were yummy; service was excellent! Just nothing extraordinary about the food.

Great Mexican restaurant, very good food. The salsa is a bit to hot and there is no alternative or mild version.

This restaurant has been here a long time and is a local favorite. The food is authentic Mexican. I especially love the corn tamales, quacamole and fajitas.

Looks like a bit if a hole in the wall from the outside, but that's usually where you find the best Mexican and this was the case. The place was very, very clean and our server Luis was a sweetheart. The beer was super cold and the food flavorful and plentiful. And very reasonably priced. We will definitely be back.

I'm not sure why this place is rated so highly. The chips and salsa are great, I will give them that, but beyond that, the food is pretty tasteless. Maybe our expectations of the entrees are too high based on the chips and salsa. Prices are average and the decor is okay. Service is not great, but the people are... More

We found out about this restaurant from a relative living in the area, and I'm so glad we got to try it. We were a party of 6, and I was impressed right off the bat when they not only brought our beverages, but also gave us pitchers of iced tea and water for the table. That was very much... More

We love the food but many times the service is awful. I took my big family there on a Tuesday night and it took forever to get drinks. No bartender at the helm .. strange. Perhaps it's the culture. .
