Ordered a chicken burrito & enchilada. Very acceptable. Server was polite. Atmosphere and decor is pretty bad and since I was there for a very late lunch, there was little to distract me. Salsa was very good...lots of garlic. But, there was a second server...More

Food was decent. Service ok. Our server was nice but one of our meals took almost 10 extra minutes to come out for a party of 4??? Bathroom not very clean. Probably will never go back. There are so many really good Mexican restaurants around
