This is such a yummy restaurant. We often go for happy hour when visiting the area. This was our first visit to this location and it didn’t disappoint. Happy hour for a margarita and an appetizer is so awesome! Friendly staff. Recommend it highly!!!

The food is really good. It tastes like Mexican food. The chips and salsa given to you is absolutely delicious. The service was also great.

Very typical Mexican food. Nothing great or bad. Just regular. Service and ambience are good though.
