We stopped in with friends for a late afternoon lunch and had a great meal. The food was very good served in a relaxing atmosphere. Chips and salsa while not as good as the plates were still very good. We will stop in again.

Absolutely delicious and fresh Mexican food that offers more authenticity and real flavor than the tex-mex offered at most restaurants. Make sure to order the Tacos Nortrenos which is too good to skip and so flavorful. Great service and really a fun atmosphere.

Well priced. Great and friendly service. Good Mexican food. Authentic, with all the trimmings. Colourful and simple surrounding. This is a lively, down home restaurant. Not an intimate environment. Great place to go for late night or for serious Mexican food junkies.

Probably too late, but I would say "YES" to your query, with the caveat that they do get busy for lunch on weekdays as prior poster said.
