The staff treats everyone like a friend. You can be in and out quickly or hangout a while. The food will be hot and fast. The chips will always be filled. Your drink will be looked after very well.

Typical Mexican fare at a reasonable price. Large menu selection. Not completely sure what specials they have, but they do offer them. Clean restaurant, friendly wait staff and the kitchen staff appear to be able to put out a decent product. Enjoy.

Hostess and wait staff were very friendly and attentive. Dos Equis amber on tap is a major plus for us when dining at any MNexican restaurant. We both had enchiladas which were very satisfactory. We thought the prices were very reasonable.
