Chicken and Beef Enchiladas with cheese sauce were really good. We even enjoyed the beef tacos and the rice and beans. Perfect location for the Comfort Suites Hotel.

So many varieties and everything was wonderful. Margaritas were too sweet and could be improved. Staff very friendly and helpful with suggestions

We had an outstanding server! The food was ok because we were tired and hungry. We live in Texas so our standards are probably higher than elsewhere when it comes to Mexican food. The restaurant is located near our motel, which was the reason for...More
