Popular spot with locals which is always a good sign. Chicken quesadillas were tasty on the homemade tortillas. Tacos were good too. Take a jacket because it was too cold in the restaurant. Wait staff was good and welcoming.

Stopped in to eat while on a road trip and was happy I chose this place. Got the Chicken nachos and they were excellent. Staff was very friendly.

The shredded beef is unmatchable! I love shredded beef because of this place but when I order it anywhere else it is not nearly as good. I have yet to find something on the menu I don't like.

They have a huge menu! Anything you can think of having, they have, and it is all good! They come out at first with chips, salsa, and beans. I get the pollo a la crema. So good! Shredded beef in enchiladas is way good. I recommend this place! Good, authentic food and great service!

Recently my husband and I had dinner. We usually order the grande because its so much food you can make 2 meals out of it. But the portions were so small it only made one meal. This was one of my favorite restaurants in town but I will have to travel out of town now for a meal worth my... More

We love to eat here. The food is consistently good. My husband loves their fajitas and I really love their Mocajeta. During the wintertime when I get a cold it works better than any medicine could to help clear my sinuses and make me feel better. The flan is made from scratch not a mix.

We went here for a family lunch with 8 people on a Thursday. The restaurant wasn't busy and the service was fine. The menu has a wide selection of choices including things like American hamburgers and salads for those who don't want Mexican. The Mexican menu selections are many.

Thank delily
