We are locals and just left there feeling like we were ripped off. I go there several times a month but this was the first time for the “SPECIAL” Taco Tuesday’s. So it was not explained that the $1 tacos are the ones with cilantro...More

Some locals recommended this place for good Mexican food. We were disappointed. They don't have a liquor license - so the Margarita's were made with Agave wine - worst ever! The fish Taco's were OK - but the shrimp fajitas had more salt on them...More

My husband enjoyed his meal but mine was not so great. The beans were very good but the rice in my opinion did not taste like Spanish rice. I did like their corn tortillas.

We haven’t ate yet. But waitress very rude! Horrible attitude. Then I go to the bathroom. The water has been running for years. Sink corroded. How does a health inspector not shut this place down?!?

The kids grabbed some Mexican food “on our way back from LUNCH”. Just so we wouldn’t starve before dinner, I guess, and it was excellent! Those tacos were everything PLUS some! And...home made chips of course! Delicious!

The salsa was fresh and delicious. That is the only good thing I can say. The refried beans tasted like they were out of a can. The rice was dry and cold. The service was incredibly slow while the restaurant was perhaps 25% full. We...More

We are locals and try to go once a month. I find their food to be good and authentic, the service is fine, not fine dining , but it's a taco joint, not a steakhouse . My only complaint is the guacamole, it is 50%...More
