We just left the Tex Mex capital of Houston and this little stop in Dover was every bit as good if not better. The fajita chicken was tender and flavorful. Service was prompt and the chips and salsa were fresh.

This is a great Mexican restaurant. The wait staff is very attentive. Ask for Juan. He is part owner of the business & takes great care of u. When we think about Mexican, we don't think of anywhere else. Margaritas are great also.

Absolutely nothing negative to say here, but no reason to get excited either. The staff was very friendly and extremely attentive. The prices and food quality are typical of every Mexican restaurant in the area. The quality was not disappointing at all, but rather unremarkable....More
