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!

Food was good. I had a shrimp quesadilla and a side of guacamole. Both were very good. 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). It all worked out fine. The dining room smelled... More

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.

This is one of the only places we've eaten that has chips... More

Folks love this place, but their bar must not be set very high. I was excited because they offered menudo on the menu (my personal litmus test for a "real" Mexican restaurant). The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Great service. But the food... Sigh. Lo Mejor de la Casa? I ordered Pollo poblano en mole (or some variation) and... More
