I had lunch with a good friend. We were looking for a nice place. This was good. I had cheese enchiladas and they were tasty. The service was nice. The restaurant is old but it seemed to have a lot of locals.

Small bar area and dark, cozy dining area make this place great for an intimate evening.........margaritas ok but tostadas a little runny

We always order the double Shrimp Fajitas. They are really tasty and there is plenty of shrimp and veggies, so much so that we ended up taking half of it home. Great salsa and chips and the Margaritas are great too.

We arrived as a group for a late lunch. We were seated quickly and drinks served. Combos were good and burritos were huge. Lunch was ~$10 per with tip. Chips and salsa were excellent. Enchiladas etc were all good. Nice restaurant all in all

Don't let the sixties restaurant look put you off. This family run restaurant is a real treat. My mole chicken burrito dinner was excellent and reminded me of my first mole experience 30+ years ago in Mexico City. Professional staff with quick service. Clean operation.

Great food. Been going here since my dating days. Carnitas is the best. Margaritas are top of the line...not pre-mixed
