Quick service, fast delivery of service, great beans. Normal prices. Only complaint is one dish came out very cold. Instead of cooking fresh they just heated it up. My daughter said more cheese

The food here is pretty flavorless, including the flavorless salsa. I'm a huge Mexican fan so I'm pretty well able to rate Mexican restaurants. Although they have very friendly staff, unfortunately their food is subpar. They don't even use real whipped cream on their fried...More

Food was good. About like other area restaurants in its class. The chips were good. Guacamole was above average. The service was slow but could have been because more people than they normally expected.

Enjoyment started with the thin chips, salsa with quiet a bit of fresh cilantro in it, and unique chipotle sauce offered along side. Entrees did not disappoint, quesadilla contained a plentiful amount of fresh chicken breast. Burrito was huge and delicious. Only disappointment was that...More

Outside is simple, but nice, cozy setting inside combine with excellent food to make this place a worthwhile stop. Great service, taste, and value. The three taco dinner (steak, chicken, shrimp) is HUGE and very TASTY! Definitely recommended.
