If you want a typical Mexican restaurant this is your spot. The food and service is good. Located on Prince Ave in the commercial area of "Normal Town. Good place for families. Not overly expensive. They serve alcohol, try a Margarita, they're pretty good. Burritos are big and good, served with rice and refried beans.

The food was tasty, big portions and fast to arrive. Pitcher of margaritas are reasonably priced. Service was ok but then again it was quite late.

This is a good quick meal at lunchtime, we were seated immediately and didn't have to wait to order or to receive food. Menu showcases variety of dishes and drinks. Kids portions are appropriately sized for small kids (under 10) but hungrier kids should order off the adult menu. My daughters loved the rice and french fries for their sides.... More

First and most important to me, my grandchildren love this restaurant so we visit every month or so. They do have a varied and satisfying choice of dishes. I had the quesadilla Wow. This is grilled chicken, onions, cheese and bell peppers with a side guacamole salad. It was very good. Between my wife and the grands there were tacos,... More

We were staying downtown & had walked to campus and restaurants near the hotel for a couple of days & we were ready for new scenery! Took off for Aqua Linda, about a 10 minute drive. Saw lots of cool, funky restaurants & shopping along the way. There was plenty of parking on the street and in a side lot.... More

This is a restaurant when I walked in I wasn't sure about but it was great! Try the enchiladas with mole sauce. Salsa was good but not spicy enough for me. Food was hot and bean and rice were awesome. Service was fast and wait staff was quick to serve. Try it soon!

As Mexican themed restaurants go.....this one is above par. No waiting and quick service. We got three different dipping sauces for the preliminary chips.
