we love this little Mexican restaurant. We always get excellent hot food and the workers are very friendly. Even though there could be some work done to the place the food is excellent.

The food is authentic, flavorful, fresh, served by a friendly, cute little gal. You get to see the whole food-making and cooking process right in front of you. The prices are good, and I always order ahead because it takes time to make it so good and right.

I was hooked on my first try. This is where Real People go for Mexican food. It's small and clean, very friendly and accommodating server and order taker. And the prices are reasonable. 5 Stars!!
