I wasn't sure I wanted to eat here when my husband suggested it, but we enjoyed it. The chips and salsa at the beginning were a nice touch. The burritos, enchiladas, and guacamole that we had were good. Our server was helpful and responsive.

Pleasantly surprised to find this place. The service was excellent as was the food. 2 for 1 Margaritas during happy hour that were generous in size. Food portions were large and tasty.

Absolutely fantastic food ! Great size proportions and the fresh salsa is to die for ! I'm just lucky it's not closer to my house or I'd eat here all the time ☺️

In town for work and was looking for a non-chain with reasonably priced food..this place fit the bill and would definately recommend to anyone who likes Mexican food...nice atmosphere and friendly service...complimentary chips and salsa to start..large margaritas and large food portions..good vegetarian choices.. .no complaints, except would have preferred not to sit amongst TVs on all sides.

SOOO good! They are very friendly!! The prices are reasonable and the food is delicious! The staff will answer any questions you may have. I would recommend the cheese and Mexican sausage dip! You may have to wait a bit if it's busy and they didn't have a bartender but they do have alcoholic drinks.

Although this is really the only Mexican restaurant locally, I think we'd still come here if there was competition! Food is very good, reasonably priced, and service is fast.

To celebrate our grand daughter's dance recital and our grandson's karate program we all went to this restaurant for dinner. The atmosphere is great. The staff are very friendly and always seem happy. The margaritas were fantastic. The food was very good and huge portions. This is a great place to a large group or just as a couple. I... More
