The salsa is delicious, and the margaritas, yum! We,be had pretty good luck with the food lately too, although sometimes it tends to be pretty salty.

This place has always been my favorite for affordable Mexican food but the last few times I’ve been here the service has gotten worse and worse. During this most recent visit, my girlfriend and I were pointed to a booth after a lukewarm greeting. After...More
