We split the burrito 🌯, it was more than enough for the two of us. We got it chuy style with sour cream and guacamole. The chips and salsa try they bring to your table was very good. The service is very friendly and quick.

Incredible chile Relleno! The sauce was wonderful. I also had a shrimp taco that was very tasty. My sister had a fish taco that she said was phenomenal.

Started with guacamole, topped with pico de gallo and Mexican cheese, which was a tasty touch. The shredded beef in my chimichanga was SO tender, moist and flavorful. The ground beef in the burrito was seasoned just right and not at all greasy. Tables were...More

This place doesn't really draw your attention but the place was cheerful and the food was fabulous! I had a Tamal which was wonderful and I had to stop my husband from sneaking fork unto my plate. I wish we could have gone there again

It's a basic restaurant - hence the 4 stars instead of 5 - but it's great. Simple, tasty Mexican food at a good price. Also, I like to drink water with my meals and had pretty much given that up in this town but discovered...More
