We went here with family. Nice atmosphere, good service. Food was what you would expect from a small Mexican restaurant. Big portions, fast service, and easy access.

Went there for dinner on a Friday night and wasn't too crowded. The food is really good and the wait staff is friendly. Food didn't take very long either. They give you a basket of tortilla chips with salsa while you wait. Delicious food.

We arrived at 2pm on a Tuesday, and were one of two couples in the restaurant (read, they were not busy at all). Ordered two different taco salads and they were brought to the table with no taco shells, just salads on a plate. They took them back to fix and made other mistakes with what was to be included...
