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.

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants you will find in Western New York. Not a chain, it's a family owned business with 3 locations and an outstanding menu. The atmosphere is warm, family oriented and friendly. Food is freshly prepared, delicious and reasonably priced. We try to dine there every few weeks. We have spent years visiting in... More
