The one dot rating is because you have to put something. This was the worst food ever! The prices were way out of line, had it been edible, it may have hastened the blow; however, not by much! Nestled right next to a trailer park,...More

Just tried this place out and really liked it. The food was decent, and atmosphere was fun. Service was slightly slow the night I went, but nothing too horrible.

The food was edible but the restaurant was in shambles with tables in disarray and nothing had been cleaned for some time. With other good Mexican choices in the area, this is one to avoid.

Everything on the menu is authentic. Steak tacos and Chicken Enchiladas are my two favorites. Family owned business, Mama Mendez makes tamales and her boys run the restaurant. My son prefers the 'tongue' tacos, so if you are into that sort of thing, they have...More

Visit often to see family. This spot is a favorite of theirs. I've never had a less than totally delicious bite. Totally fresh quality food too!
