I used to love coming here. Burritos still good. Salsa still awesome. The chips however have gone downhill. They were cold and tasted stale. Hoping it was just an off day. I would try it again but wasn’t impressed.

The chips and salsa are quite good. They are delivered to your table right away. My Margarita was different, but quite good. The Taco Salad was pretty good. We were hungry for Mexican food and we were satisfied.

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.
