We arrived hot, hungry and thirsty after a bicycle ride. The beer was cold and the food was great . We had a assortment of nachos, Enchiladas, chimichanga, and burritos. The green enchilada sauce was especially good. The chips and salsa were much better than chain Mexican restaurants.

My husband and I had lunch here today and were surprised and pleased with the food, service, and pricing of our meal. I ordered the chicken nachos while my hair stand ordered the chicken taco salad. My meal was more than sufficient so I was able to bring the remainder home for a second delicious meal. The chicken was shredded... More

Food was great and portions were generous. There were several Finger Lakes wines by the glass on the wine list Service was friendly and it seems like a... More

Food was good. Portions were very adequate. Prices were very fair. Family oriented, but bottle beer and margaritas available. Our service was very good.
