Stopped there for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the service, quantity and quality of food! So tasty!! I had the lunch Beef Chimichanga with cheese sauce which came with refried beans, rice, shredded lettuce with guacamole and sour cream on a huge plate! It...would be worth a substantial drive to eat there! I will be back 😀More

If you’re tired of the same menu offerings at your usual Mexican restaurants, this is your new favorite. Theirs is one of the most diverse menus I have seen. Oh you’ll find your traditional favorites, but so often they include a twist. The Chipotle chicken...has a chipotle cream sauce. They have an extensive seafood menu. I tried the Quesadilla al Horno, which had crab, shrimp, and tilapia, with tomatoes, onions, and poblano peppers. The portions are generous, the waiters are friendly, and the unique menu offerings made deciding what to try a real challenge. Worth the drive.More

Great prices and good food. The atmosphere is very friendly. The lunch specials are great if you are on a budget. Just wish they delivered.

Stopped for lunch with friends and had the lunch menu. Food was well prepared, and you got a LOT for $6. I had to ask for drink refills as the waiter wasn't seen after food was delivered, and they were not busy, but they seemed...to be short-staffed? I'll be going back for more selections from their menu!More
