The food was ok but not that great. The meat had alot of gristle. The service was awful. I had to ask the waitress, Sonia, for a refill twice. Go to any Mexican restaurant other then this one.

Every time we go which is every few weeks we are more than happy with the service and the food. I don't go to any other Mexican because I know they can't compare!

After eating lunch here recently, our group unanimously agreed that this restaurant is the worst Mexican restaurant in this area. The place is dirty, the service is inattentive and the food is awful.
