Love that background music is not loud Mexican. You can carry on a conversation and still enjoy the music. Warm chips and salsa always good. I love the Parrillada. Great flavor and plenty for leftovers. Pleasant and prompt service>

If you want authentic Mexican food, this is the best place to go. The atmosphere and the food makes you think you are actually south of the border.

Good food, and very reasonable prices on the lunch menu. Nothing extraordinary, but definitely worth visiting if you are in the mood for Mexican food.
