This place had decent food and prices were not bad, fajita tacos were mini but with salsa they were acceptable, just to stop and go, recommended.

The tacos here are more like taquitos and had good flavor. The fajitas and quesadillas are just OK. Not bad but just not great. If you go here, it is an experience however I would not go out of my way.
