I dont understand the bad reviews, but I see they are pretty old. My husband loves the Hamburger Steak. It’s enough for two people unless you are a big eater. My favorite is the Chicken Taco Salad. I have never had a bad meal there....More

I enjoy their Mexican food. Family likes the burgers. Breakfasts are huge but they don't open until about 9am I believe. Closed on Tuesdays!

Definitely not an authentic Mexican place. Portions are just large sloppy comfort American-sort-of-trying-to-do-Mexican dishes. Either they were crazily understaffed or had slightly too much faith in their servers & gave them larger sections than they should've had. The host at the door (large, friendly man),...More
