Visited with friends for lunch and was disappointed at the service and meal. The lunch specials were not very special at all. Small servings and not very tasty. To access the parking lot you must be traveling south on Broadway. My advice, keep on driving.

The remodeling of this place has been a 25-year project - a little at a time. The ambiance gets better but I do not think their food is near as good as it was years ago.

I had this place bookmarked (not sure why) and finally got around to trying it out. Pretty straight up divey Mexican restaurant. I judge my Mexican restaurants all on the same three things: Chips, Salsa and their Burrito. The chips and salsa were very good....More
