It's clean and decorated for a fiesta. The food was good. The service was good. We were seated quickly and were served promptly. We had the Texas Fajitas for two. The steak was tender and the shrimp was huge. It was a delicious supper. Even enjoyed the Mexican music.

they have changed management who doesnt seem to care about your experience. i would not recommend this restaurant since its under new management. chips are either burned or not cooked, raw peppers in a deep fried chalupa!, tough beef, tough pork. the salsa tasted rancid. sad. it used to be great, but not now.

The Mexican dishes with steak and or shrimp are very good. Lunch prices are very reasonable. They use angus beef in their dishes. My grandson loves this place. Kids menu available. The gautomole is good as well as their cheese sauce. Steaks are good too. Surprise for a Mexican restaurant.

We went for lunch. The atmosphere is nice with painted murals on the wall showing the Hispanic culture. The lunch menu has specials at $5.99 not including drinks. They bring complimentary crisp chips and salsa to the table. Lunch was good. I had a chicken enchilada, chalupa and cheese quesadilla. The chicken was chunks of white meat. It was tasty.... More

We just ate there tonight, so my meal is very fresh in my mind. The food was great and there was more than enough. Everything was fresh and steaming hot when it arrived. The waiter was excellent. There was a tiny mix-up in my order causing it to be re-done, but that was done quickly and efficiently. Enjoyed our evening.

This restaurant is a nice place to bring the family! It's big enough for large groups and has nice waitstaff, but they can be a bit slow on returning to tables to check on the guests.

Have eaten here several times. The food has always been good as well as the service. I especially like the chicken breastfeeding with chorizo sausage. Hot food, good service and reasonable prices.
