The food is always fresh and delicious. From the chips and salsa when you arrive, to the main dishes. It is always good. The service is good and the owners care about their guests.

The food seems freshly made from scratch. Delicious, served piping hot. Service is above other restaurants of similar size. Very busy, which is due to reputation.

The food is freshly made and delicious. We especially like the dinners, but everything we have had there has been really good. The tea is wonderful! The service could not be better. Everyone is smiling, friendly, and helpful. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

This place is busy from open til close. Very good Mexican food. Open 7 days per week. Service is wonderful, Chips and Salsa is a continuous flow to your table if you just wish to talk and chill with a beer.
