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.
