I went with a large group for lunch and was surprised at the quality of the food and the low prices. Pleasant atmosphere and good service.

Decent food for a decent price. I don't like the hard tacos but the carnitas are excellent. The staff are very friendly and happy to suggest something off the menu. Atmosphere is warm and inviting.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. The chips, salsa, quest, and guacamole are lovely. The guacamole is definitely house made, and the best! Great service, sometimes hard to understand though. The churros are AMAZING!!

Totally worth it! Great food, price even better! $16 for a well served entree. Tequila Sunrise was great, could come in a bigger glass though.

I was craving a more authentic style of Mexican food. You will not find that at this restaurant. As the previous reviewer mentioned, the chips and salsa are good. The food is not bad, but if you are wanting some real enchiladas don't expect to...More
