Sooooo good! Queso excellent, brisket tacos are divinely smoked and tender. Beef fajitas are superior and much better than the chicken. Overall excellent experience. Love this place

It’s one of our favorite Mexican restaurants, well worth our 45 minutes drive. Sopapillas are good if you have the room. Guacamole is good and fresh.

Super clean and bright. Great service! Margaritas are fabulous. And beef fajitas, wow! Also the queso is more than just melted cheese. Tasty! Yummy spinach enchiladas. Wanted more sauce on top, though.

A great selection of food and drinks. Homemade tortilla chips are amazing. Friendly atmosphere with outdoor seating. Family friendly and great service.

Not good. No one at our table could eat the food. Chicken flautas tasted like fish, shells on the shrimp, bad chips, guacamole was slimy, need I go on. Beware of you dare.

Chose this restaurant because of TripAdvisor ratings and the experience started well but ended poorly. Place was busy but we were seated quickly and that is when things started going downhill. First our waitress was very attentive but was clearly over-assigned tables having at least...More
