Awesome service, food and pricing. Love it here! Authentic food with lots of choices on the menu. Everything I've eaten here has been so good.

As Mexican food, this was average, although better than much of what you'll find in the upper Midwest. The dining room was pleasant and service pretty good. Almost four stars but not quite.

The service was very fast and friendly. The chips were hot and the salsa was delicious. I ordered the Mariachi special, two chimichangas with rice, beans, guacamole and sour cream. The food arrived really fast and was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.

No vegetarian items listed, but the server was accommodating about adding beans to a dish. The food was okay, but I've had much better Mexican. The Margarita was good.

We stopped in for lunch. Friendly staff and quick service. We thought the prices were a little high for a small lunch portion. I ordered fajitas and my husband orders a chimi. His was very small, he ate part of mine. : ) Decent chips...More
