The atmosphere is not typical of a Mexican restaurant as it looks more like a mom & pop diner. The food is fairly bland as compared to what I am used to. If you've got to have Mexican, I am sure it will do.

My husband and I eat there a lot I'd say we're regular customers. We usually get good service and we like the food. The prices are good.

Not as good as Casa Brava (the local favorite), but the food is still pretty good with more controlled portions priced appropriately. If you want Mexican on a budget this is the place.

The food is always fresh and the service is always great. It's always our go to place whenever we are in the mood which is usually a couple times a week. They never let us down.

This is our favorite Mexican Restaurant in Bedford, IN. The food has always been good. The servers are always pleasant. Some don't speak English, so be patient. The Waiters that have taken our orders speak English well. You get good food, a generous serving, quick service and a nice atmospere. What more could you ask for?!
