We have eaten here many times over the years being it's close to home. The food is ok, nothing to brag about is the truth. The service is all over the board, sometimes great, lately not so good. We've been when their busy, and been when not many people are present and have waited way to long for orders, drinks... More

Authentic Mexican food. I like the the fact that you have a choice of salsa not just the obligatory red tomato sauce most mex restaurant bring to your table. Good live music on the weekends nice bar selection and yet still a family atmosphere.

My husband and I Went for the Sunday buffet on the recommendation of a friend. We were put in a very crowded area away from the buffet. The Mexican food was very cold and interesting the southern food was hot. Having a taste for Mexican we were very disappointed.

Although this is a Mexican restaurant, the Sunday buffet has it all, including smoked brisket and pork, made-to-order omelets, vegetables, wonderful home-made desserts, and Mexican items. The food is good the rest of the week as well, but does not have as much variety. A buffet is also offered on Tuesday evenings. The food quality is excellent and the service... More

This is the 3rd time I have eaten here. Each time I have gotten a variety of things from burritos to chimichangasto to enchiladas. Each time it is right on the money. I like that they bring you two types of salsa as well. The wait staff is always great and very accommodating. I highly recommend if you are in... More

A lot to eat and taste good too! As many people were there to eat, we had good service. Needed more space/seating for as many people were there to eat.

We tried this place just because it was nearby. The restaurant was clean, we were immediately seated, and the waiter was very personable. The food was very good....even the chips and salsa and side items. Service was quick.

This restaurant has more than just the combination dinners of the typical Mexican place. They even do burgers. Inside is kinda a mish mash of different areas. It is clean including the restrooms. Food was good. Nice little kids menu comes with a page to color and a crayon. Friendly and efficient waiter. There is an outside seating area that... More

Always great food and always good service. The Tuesday night buffet is not for the shy or those who are dieting. The price is great and the food is quite varied - the brisket is extraordinary.
