The food isn’t very spicy but there is Tabasco on the table to liven it up. Servings were quite large. The dining room is beautifully decorated. Service was prompt and very friendly.

They have anything you are wanting in a good Mexican restaurant. The staff was friendly and they had a children's menu. The sundae comes in a margarita glass and is wonderful. Good to share.
