I ate here for lunch. I had heard a lot of good things about their Mexican Food. Unfortunately, it was not what I expected. If you like TexMex, its okay. I like traditional, real Mexican food.

Stopped for lunch on the way through. Service was slow, food was OK. Nice patio outside. It was OK but not really anything special. I'd do it again though.

We chose this restaurant based upon Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Meals were about $13 each, but they did offer a daily meal special for less. The service, food, and atmosphere were all great. We would eat here again!

We did dinner and I found my enchilada to be very bland. It took some time to get waited on. When I asked how my friend's food was he was unimpressed. I had a nice chili relleno, though. Wait staff was friendly. Nice outdoor tables.
