Nice atmosphere. Stopped for a late lunch on a short trip. Weren't many people in the place. Typical decor for a Mexican restaurant. I had the lunch special #1 with a chili relleno (my fave). It was EXCELLENT! Priced right.

They check all the boxes of what it takes to be an excellent restaurant. Friendliness, Awesome Service, Pleasing Atmosphere and Delicious Authentic, as well as Americanized dishes for those more accustomed to that. Never a wrong order, never anything but a wonderful experience.

Local favorite for Mexican food. Newly expanded, service has been compromised due to enlarged space but I’m confident they’ll have it back in order soon!

We ate a late lunch while going for the Polar Express. Overall good food - wife had the mini-chimichangas, I had the burrito patron and kiddo had the kids burrito. The burrito patron is huge and comes loaded with shrimp, chicken and steak as well...as cheese dip and green salsa. Fair warning - their habanero salsa is hot, but flavorful! Only small negative was the length of time to get the ticket after finishing our meal (approx 10-15 min) but there seemed to only be one waiter working and others bringing out food.More

After waiting 30 minutes waiting we were told it was almost ready, at 40 minutes we were told it was ready and it wasn’t because we were going to leave and just pay for our drinks, at 50 minutes we got it to go. I...specifically asked the owner to make sure we got silverware so we could eat in the car and we didn’t get any. The staff other staff was friendly but it wasn’t a good experience.More

The food is very good and you get a lot of food for your money. It is moderately prices . The waiters and waitresses are friendly and are there to seat and serve you as you arrive. It is busy so make sure to get...there before the crowd.More
