The food was excellent. Free chips and salsa prior to dinner. I had a shredded chicken burrito. My wife had a grilled chicken burrito. The grilled chicken had a nice flavor. Bathrooms were dirty on our visit. Only downfall.

Don't like the way the restaurant is set up, but have never had a bad meal there. The portion sizes are very large and the food is pretty authentic.

The Mexican food here is delicious and I loved the fast service. The queso dip is out of this world. The chips are always fresh and homemade salsa has a nice kick. This family owned business should be visited!
