I've only had lunches there. The food is authentic, satisfying, and reasonably priced. There is more than the usual tacos and enchiladas from which to choose. There is a full bar and imported beers. The decor is pleasant.

I love Mexican food and like to try new places. I ordered guacamole for the table along with salsa and chips. Salsa seemed to be from a jar. Family ordered quesadillas, they were ok. Not the place if you are looking for authentic Mexican
