Went for a business lunch. The lunch specials were reasonably priced and good portions. They don’t serve liquor so no margaritas or other festive drinks. Overall positive experience. Would go back for sure.

I have never had a bad meal here. I often order the steak soft tacos or the Burrito Especial but everything I have tried has been good. Great Family atmosphere and great service.
