I went to this place after a year, and haven't change a bit. I used to be their regular customer when they were located at Newberry road. Their food is not the same anymore. I don't know what is going on with this place. I ordered vegetarian plate, and I received a plate of oven ready plate. I know how... More

I have been here for lunch multiple times. The owner is a great person and the staff is super friendly. The food is authentic and they give you enough for left overs.

Another good spot. Quick service, and good food. They actually play Mexican Music in this restaurant which I think adds to the ambience. The waiter gave me a choice of hot or mild on the salsa. Don't get that everywhere? The food was really good. I had the number 8, the price was right and I was very satisfied. The... More

Our waitress was very nice and efficient. The complimentary chips and salsa were excellent and they were the best part of the meal. I ordered the cheese quesadilla with chicken. The chicken was marinated in something interesting. It was extremely salty and I could hardly stomach it and I love salt. My friend ordered the fish tacos. They were very... More

Based on the previous review we decided to call to see if they were closed, found out that the address listed was the old address. I let the management know so they can correct it. I had the cheese and onion enchiladas with chili con carne on top instead of the standard sauce. That was a great decision! The chili... More

Very enjoyable evening with close friends. The restaurant is very nicely decorated. The temperature was very comfortable. (I generally find restaurants very cold in temperature) The music was very nice and very appropriate. But not too loud to cover up or drown out conversation. Our server was very attentive. Best of all the food was delicious.

Thank histo49
