They used to be pretty good, but the last 3 times several of us have been there, it's not very good. There are much better Mexican restaurants.

The food was disgusting my enchiladas were cold... More

A romantic Mexican restaurant where you can bring a family. The food is excellent. I have had numerous dishes and all were quality and tasty! One of my favorites and I have been to Mexico, Arizona and lived in Texas.

We were greeted immediately and seated. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. We had ceviche as an appetizer. It was terrific! I ordered chili verde and my husband ordered birria (goat). Both were excellent. We will return to this restaurant!

Place way too small. Staff was okay. Waitress made us feel dumb for asking questions about the combinations. We wanted a booth, but had to sit at a table since there was no booths available. Tables are way too small. We had no room for our plates since the waters and soda cups were so huge. We spilled one of... More

Seemed like they took shredded chicken rolled it in corn... More

Stopped in for a quick bit so ordered the shredded beef nachos with black beans. Hugh portion, fresh and flavorful. Enough for a couple days leftovers! Friendly staff.
