Pleasantly surprised not to have to wait to get seated. Normally jammed packed for dinner. Plenty of tables available for weekday lunch. Lunch menu includes chips with delicious homemade salsa. The soup was a pleasant surprise and quite tasty. When our entrees came, we were only able to eat a fraction of the large portions. The waiter was attentive to... More

The quality of the food is great. The service of the people were nice. The price is amazing for the quality and amount of food you get. The plantains are fantastic. Just took about 35 minutes from order to plate sadly, might have been down a person.

We come here often. I always order the Mexican Pizza under appetizers. It's great to share. I order for a meal so I can have left overs! It's just that good! Margaritas are Always on Point!! You can't go wrong if you are in the mood for Spanish/Mexican food. Chips and Salsa, the Best!!
