We were in town for a little while and tried this place. We all had enchiladas that had no beans in them and were really good. The chips were good and the cheese sauce excellent. Service was prompt and very helpful. I would go back if I returned to the town and wanted quality Mexican food

Was pleasantly surprised when a friend took us here for supper recently. Looks like a "typical" Mexican restaurant, but was definitely a notch above! The food was seasoned perfectly, not with a heavy hand as is sometimes the case. Service was just the right amount of attentiveness. Margaritas were great, and were a $1.99 special that night. Even the "grouch,"... More

We were here for a softball tournament and needed a place to hold 25-30 people. I called about an hour before we wanted to eat and the manager was very helpful. They were able to accommodate all of us, and easily handle 10 separate checks. Service and food was fantastic.

It is a tastefully decorated restaurant with good Mexican food. They have recently added on with an outdoor area.

This is a popular Mexican place with a lot of the locals. Yet is not tidy or clean all the time. The staff can be the best servers or not even care you are there. The food is ok but not worth a special visit. The place has just finished additional seating with an out door type dining area. The... More

I just met my friends here this week for an after work meal. I had not been there since they finished their outside seating. It was awesome weather and awesome seating. I had one of the vegetarian specials where you got bean burritos which were very good. It was margarita special night. They were $1.99 and well worth it. The... More

We wanted a nice meal out and chose this restaurant for Mexican food. There were four of us. Two of the four dishes were so salty we could barely eat them. The other two dishes were just OK. We picked around on our dishes and when the waiter asked if everything was good I commented on the food having been... More
