Great service and the cleanest place always. You can watch the kitchen from your seat in the restaurant w a camera feed. I have never had a bad meal, always fantastic, great food and a Norman favorite. The owner/manager is always attentive and making sure his staff gives top notch service and serves the best Mexican dishes.

My husband and I have gone here a few times now and we were quite impressed! Not only is the service fast, but the food is great, too.
