We drive 45 minutes just to eat their food. They have great tacos and traditional Mexican dishes. Very busy on the weekends and holidays. Great Mexican candy On the counter.

We heard so many good reviews about this place. We were very disappointed with our experience. Our first impression was it was dirty. The walls were splattered with food, the glass shelves near our table were covered with dust and the table itself was sticky. The restaurant was ridiculously loud and extremely hot. I ordered chicken tacos and the chicken... More

Take everything you know about Taco Bell, Chipotle Grill, Don Pablo's and Chili's. Now forget all that and prepare to enjoy "for real" Mexican. Everything is fresh, prepared to order and like it came straight from abuela's cocina. Burritos, fajitas, enchiladas, tamales...and so much more. Waitresses are helpful and knowledgeable and can guide you through the menu if you need... More

We ordered the guacamole which was creamy but good. Huge portions: burritos are giant! The Fat Alex was amazing - the steak was tender! My daughters Chicken Burrito was huge and she enjoyed 1/3 and brought the rest home. My husband's Enchilada's Verde was delicious with just the right amount of heat. Now we have lunch for tomorrow! Service was... More

You can't beat the Margaritas, especially the daily special. We went on a Saturday night with reservations for 4. There was a bucket of beer special for the guys and the ladies had delicious citrus margaritas --with a subtle punch. Fried plantains, empanadas were great appetizers. I had the fajitas and they were well prepared and as with many Mexican... More

We dined here on a Saturday night prior to going to the Cinemark for a movie. We were told the wait would be about 20 minutes; pleasantly it was a little under. We started with the special blood orange margaritas -- a delicious twist. We ordered the guacamole, which was freshly made and tasty. For the price, the quantity was... More

Tonight's dinner was at a Mexican restaurant we have tried before. Tonight, it was excellent. The guacamole was fresh and abundant. Our cocktails were bright and delicious. Dinner was even better. The outside of the building is painted pink, and the inside is colorfully painted in colors. It could use a re-paint... But that does not negatively impact the food.... More
