I love this place! It looks just like your typical mid-west Mexican restaurant, but the food is sooo much better! I the salsa is great, the margaritas are very good- not too overly-sweet, and I am absolutely in love with "The Henry Burrito." Normally, I...More

I thought the chips and salsa were average. Salsa a little salty. I had tacos al pastor. It was good, not great. My husband had the fried chicken. That was great. Good service. Not a bad place to have Friday night dinner. Reasonably priced.
