This is just down the street from the Best Western Hotel and is very convenient. We ate here on the outdoor patio. They had a special that had shrimp and chicken in it. They give you plenty of chips and salsa too. Overall, this was a very good meal at a good price.

Went there and had $1 tacos. They were delicious and cheap! And it was so neat to watch the staff making the tortillas in-house!

The servers were genuine, yet young and inexperienced which meant that they really didn't communicate very well (did not listen to my question and instead just talked without really answering my food related questions).

My burrito was very good, as were the other three dishes we ordered. The setting was attractive and clean, and the service was good. The prices were competitive.
