We eat here often and love the food. I also love the Margs! Really good menu, lots of choices and food is good and served hot! Whatever your favorite Mexican food, they will have it. Good Mexican environment and friendly staff!

This is a smallish but comfortable Mexican-San Salvadoran restaurant. They have all of the traditional Mexican dishes -- and while I didn't taste these -- my friends said they were good. They looked pretty typical to me, which is not to say that they didn't taste good, but they didn't appear to be anything out of the ordinary. While the... More

So very tasty, not busy at all!! Great greasy breakfast or just traditional Mexican breakfast. Also the best picture of margaritas in town. There are literally like double pitches. Yum, Yum!!

Reasonable prices for good, down-home Mexican dishes. A family owned and run restaurant with a full bar. Nothing gourmet but always good and you won't walk out hungry. If you are lucky you might hear the family mariachi band on Sunday evening.

It is really a bummer to see a restaurant go into decline. This was a pretty good place to eat, but no more. Last visit had multiple issues. First we had an incredible wait for our food and then it was delivered to all four of us over 15 minutes - come on, bring everyone their food at once.. They... More

Chose this place over other Mexican restaurants in the area because I heard it was good. First it was horribly hot and muggy in there, then the server never brought our waters that we asked for twice. Get my margarita in a timely matter, pretty excited... Just kidding. Tasted like only lemon juice. Asked to trade it for a beer... More

Worst Mexican I have ever had.... Overly salty, burnt, and unpleasing as a whole! This place was a complete waste of money from the food to the service! The waitresses don't even know what bourbon is, and cannot be bothered to come check on you during your meal! Apparently, they do not care if you are pleased or not, because... More
