We came here for my "grand twins" 3rd birthdays. The service was outstanding, and food was good. Our waiter had a great personality and was very attentive to the needs of the children. We will return.

This family owned restaurant is filled with friendly and experienced staff. Every entree is crafted authentic and delicious! The crab and shrimp enchiladas were wonderful!

Ok Mexican food. Can do better at one of our local taquerias. Service kind of slow...didn't replace our chips or refill our drinks. And please close the woman's bathroom door at the entrance to your restaurant because your check in area smelled like a bathroom....More

Rather dated ambiance. Large restaurant. Spotty service. The traditional Mexican food we ordered was definitely less than average in style, preparation, and taste. Good chips and salsa.
