Excellent, authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices. Shredded beef and cheese enchiladas with refined beans and rice is my favorite. Complimentary chips and homemade salsa is a great appetizer. Prompt, courteous service always.

We go here every year when we stay in Florida. This place is so good. It’s different than the Mexican food at home but we like it.

You should call and see. The area I am aware of would be semi-private at best. They have a large back room as well as a smaller front dining area. Both have been busy when we are there.
