That's right, I actually felt sick when I left this restaurant - no wonder it was nearly empty at dinner time. For starters, the salsa was thin and obviously out of a can, the chips had the consistency of something left under the heat lamp for hours (days?) and were painful to try and bite! I ordered the Steak Milanesa,... More

Thought I'd try this place since a friend said it was good. The food was good and the amount of portions was ok as well . Not your typical Mexican place were its loud and fast paced. This place is quiet and clean . The only thing I think is a concern is the staple of the chips and salsa... More

I was pretty surprised that this place it rated so well. The service is ok...nothing great, not to many smiles. The food seemed pre-made and then microwaved. The guacamole was disgusting, can't believe they call that stuff "guacamole",probably came from a frozen bag of avocado mush... Sad. I ordered a shrimp cocktail and got a Pico de gallo soup with...

Good Mexican food here. The staff are all really personable as well. The prices may seem high at first, but all the entrees come with a soup or salad.

Delicious food.... Highly recommend the Carne Asada Burritos! Chimichanga also delicious as well as their soup. Would pass on the Margaritas here though but the food is fabulous.

This place can only be described as "adequate." Nothing exciting about the décor, the wait staff, or the food. Will say we went for a small birthday get together, and they did give the birthday girl a free dessert. Have never had to wait to be seated.

Sundays work for me. Huevos Ranchero red and green together. (Ask) service is always quick & personable. Some the best withen 15 miles. Also they have three Salas if you like Hot you have to ask for it. There pico is really tasty.
