Standard Tex-Mex food and typical Mex service. Prices are about average for about average food. Restaurant is in an old home and not much atmosphere. OK for a quick. unempressive lunch. No place to impress a date

Nothing too spectacular. Food was okay. I think they could certainly improve on cleanliness. I don't think we'll return.

The taco beef was much worse than what I make at home from the kit I buy at the grocery store, and the consistency wasn’t like real hamburger meat. My bar is high as I’m a Mexican food lover.

We ordered fajitas for two with steak and chicken. The serving size was enough for three adults. The service was a little slow but the food was worth the wait. They severed two free rounds of chips and salsa during our wait.
