I'll admit I'm not a regular. It's been hit or miss when I've gone there in the past. The last time I went was a few months ago and it was good. I don't know if they changed cooks or what, but it was a decent meal. I liked their salsa.

Reliable Mexican type food, with good salsas, and for those with a hearty appetite there is a monster burrito called El Matador for $9, that will leave most people gasping for air. Albondigas soup a nice option, and can very well be a whole meal for those who like a decent Albondigas soup. Prices in the area all seem to... More

We went in with a rather large group and they accommodated all our needs, from keeping the glasses filled to getting the orders filled to perfection. Will definitely be going back.

An excellent place for breakfast. Very reasonable daily specials and a large variety of omelets and you get to pick 2 sides from an assortment ranging from delicious pancakes to biscuits and gravy...you can have both! Always excellent service is a plus.

Carnitas Express is my favorite Mexican restaurant. The menu is extensive, pricing is very reasonable, and they have the best "killer" salsa. Friendly and fast service.
