The owners of the restaurant have gone out of their way to make a restaurant look different, Spanish tiles on the roof heavy wooden doors which gives you a feeling Of the Spanish architecture. Their porch/patio is adorned with stone and Wrought iron and is great area to relax and kick back and enjoy this superb Mexican cuisine. The inside... More

Stopped for a travel lunch. Everything was tasty. We had more chips and salsa than anybody should eat. The regular salsa was fair - the "spicy" salsa was spicy but not fantastic. The service was good and the restaurant and bathrooms were clean. And, very affordable. Not the best food ever but good for lunch on a budget.

The carne asada with red sauce was awesome, tender and marinated perfectly, with a red sauce that is spicy, but not burning. My wife had the tamales and all I can say is wow, enormous and the tamale dough was definitely fresh and homemade. The service is courteous and prompt and the fresh cilantro salsa is tops.

Top notch staff-seated us quickly-brought waters & chips & salsa promptly! Chips & salsa were fresh! Food arrived in a timely manner and it did not disappoint! Very flavorful. Burrito & enchiladas were delicious! Very pleasant & attentive waiter!

I have eaten Mexican food all over the country and this was by far the worst I have ever eaten. It was either undercooked, overcooked, or burnt. Help put this place out of it's misery.

Karaoke got rained out, but we didn't! Good food, good company, and mangoras by the fountain! Did I say order the mangorona? (friend describes it as "a margarita on steroids".)

This was an old favorite of ours years ago, but the service had fallen off and the food just wasn't as good. It seemed like they either got new management or shaped back up because we went there recently and they've remodeled with a beautiful outdoor patio, and parts of the interior, service was better and the food was back...

I did not find this place too bad, although not great. Nothing to write home about that is for sure. My husband on the other hand cannot eat here. Every time we have tried, he gets sick one way or the other within hours. 4 times and 4 times sick (Top or bottom or a double...) After 4 we gave... More
