My favorite place for breakfast. Breakfast tacos and traditional favorites with the best refritos I have ever had. Scratch made margaritas and frescos. More authentic mexican food.

What you see is what you get, same old menu. The restaurant doesn't look very clean, sticky table. For sure not going back.

The last we visited this place there were mice running all over. Never have gone back since. Appeared to need the inside pressure washed , dirty and greasy. Poor service

This place is a very casual, family-friendly place with really good food! They have daily specials which makes it even more affordable. The service is fast so you can make it back to work from lunch in time. And the margaritas after work are delish!

For Mexican food it is okay, I have had better. We normally go to this place for breakfast, and for that purpose it met the need. As for dinner we will pass, cramp parking.
