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

My first experience here and I am very pleased. Kept it simple with a combo "tres" and was very happy with both taste and temperature. Nothing astounding to report, just good food in a nice environment, fast service and friendly help. I would recommend it.

Over priced and menus are definitely not wat it says, steak was thin and over cooked and advertised as something it was not. My coworker had a dead fly served on his food while his wife had 1 small piece of chicen in her fajita. My food was bad and service was slow. Find another place to eat unless this... More

I would have to say that this is my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. If you eat at the restaurant, I fully suggest getting a cheese dip to go with your chips and salsa. You won't be sorry. You can also call in your order, and take it home with you. Whether you eat in the restaurant, or carry out,... More

We were attending a funeral and needed a place close to the funeral home to have supper. The locations was great, but the food was not. We waited quite a long time for our food and there was nothing special about it. We did get more chips and salsa, but only because we asked, not because someone was watching to... More

This is great Mexican food at a fair price. Plan a big plateful! This place is very nice and I like the decor.
