We have been looking for a good Mexican restaurant. We finally found one! They have buffet style dining. Even though I have been dieting, I was able to make a very good taco salad without the shell. We'll go back for sure!

Great variety. Great chili rellenos and cheese enchiladas. The service was great. I am sure we will be back. The atomosphere was pleasant and noise level low. Interesting authentic dishes served there as well.
