But wayyyyy overpriced. Wait staff is nice but slow. The service is slow, so you'll but more drinks. Food is really excellent for Mexican food. I don't think it's really worth the price and the wait.

Best Mexican food in the northwest suburbs. Friendly informative staff eager to enhance your dining experience. We visit about 4 times a year. Enchiladas are my personal favorite.

Excellent ceviche and authentic Mexican. Service always friendly. Great for a summer evening or any time of year! I like the Enchiladas and guacamole made fresh as well. Eat here for an off the beaten path non-chain local experience.

The food is good, not authentic Mexican by any means, but tasty. The prices are reasonable. It is worth a trip.
