Simple Mexican food served in a casual environment. Nice place to go with family and kids. Food served quickly and hot. There are nicer places to go but I am rating this as a excellent cheap eats restaurant. Nothing fancy. Just good food.

Had a Margarita on an empty stomach. Good thing there was little to no tequila in the drink otherwise I would have been stumbling out of the place. Pleasant enough décor and service exceeded the need. Food unfortunately tasted less than original. Mexican food is notable for its originality, fresh flavors and freshness. This was not found in what was... More

We eat here whenever we visit family. These days, that's probably only about once a year. The inside is a bit kitschy but colorful and pleasant. It looks clean and the staff is friendly. It's a seat yourself place and they greeted us quickly. We were there for breakfast but they serve the whole menu all day , I believe.... More

We have been here a few times. The food is really good. The only thing we did not like was the cheese sauce which was just cheese not queso. I would recommend eating here. I wrote this for the wrong place last time, I meant it for this place..

Went with several members of my family. We all enjoyed our food especially the rice. The staff is very friendly. The price was average. The bathrooms and restaurant was clean. Love the friendly waitresses!

The courteous staff worked swiftly to bring a deliciously authentic meal to their customers while the decor gave one a feeling of being south of the border.

Love coming here. It's small and very inviting. It's not too loud so you can actually have a conversation. Food is consistently good and always fresh. The salsa is a little chunky for me but my husband loves it! Looking forward to next visit. Also appreciate how we are always greeted - very kind.

We went there with friends (his choice), the first waiter was nice, courteous and clean cut. It was cold, so we moved. The next one was a female, don't know if she was new or what. She was not that great. Nice but not real friendly and we had to wait longer than expected. They were NOT busy. We were... More

Fantastic food. Had the chicken fajitas with their homemade corn tortillas (best corn tortillas I have had in ages). Service was second to none. If you get the chance to dine here ask for Grace. She is AMAZING. She made sure I was comfortable and taken care of which is nice when you are dining alone....
