We went here for lunch and ordered fajitas for two. The food was good and the portion was big enough for four. I would definitely recommend this place.

My husbands comment was "when the tacos aren't any good, it is bad. My grandson ordered a seafood dish and I have never seen such... More

A little off the main road in a strip mall easy to miss but that would be a mistake. We got food for take out. I really like the decor and the seating arrangement. We got our food in around 10 minutes large servings and the food was good authentic. The restaurant was packed. I would recommend it.

We thought we would give this one more try.. Well it was worse than our last visit. Service was slow and food Luke warm. We order tamales and they were the worst some type of sauce on them. The tacos were just filed with beef and nothing else. The salsa is just tomatoes that have been blended up. Stay away.
