Best Mexican food in town. You can count on good hot food and fast friendly service every time. Try the Vallarta. It is excellent, as well as the Chicken Fiesta for a healthier choice. Something for everyone here!

Great food and great service. Food was fresh and hot. My husband loved the Tamales and the Margaritas were wonderful. Very authentic Mexican Food. Would highly recommend. Prices are more than reasonable. If ever in the area, give them a try.
