This is a run-of-the-mill Mexican place. You'll get big entrees that come with the requisite rice and beans. My fish tacos looked good and had a good mix of textures, but they lacked any flavor. A real disappointment. Chips and salsa were fine. But nothing special. I don't live in the area, but I doubt I would come back.

Very generous portions for those on a budget. The staff take the time to help you decide what to get based on your taste. The chips and salsa are very good. I love the enchiladas and salads and drink selection is the best.

I've eaten here 4 times and every time it's been awful. Last night I got their chicken chimichanga, it's huge and looks good but it was filled with more beans than chicken. My hubby got their crab enchilada, they opened a can of crab meat, dumb it in a tortilla and put some sort of green sauce on it. He... More

I know I went with the fam to a mex place and ordered a 9$ burger. Why didn't I order the bandito or even mahi tacos as I have in the past and was thrilled with them. Things I didn't like about the burger, 1 smaller patty than bun 2 bun had to be lifted to make sure there was... More

Don't let the appearance fool you! The food is so good, huge helpings. Lots of drinks to choose from and my favorite chips and salsa anywhere! The staff are awesome and make us feel welcomed everyone. Give my favorite place to eat a try. 😆

I agree with the other reviews-- plenty of chips and good salsa. But the place is dirty and run-down (not in a charming sense), service is pretty bad (mostly a bunch of high school kids that could care less), and the food all tastes the same.

Good food, good service, good drinks! Small but very good. Good place to just have a taco and very good margaritas!

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but the tastes are always great. We've eaten here lots of times (and ordered take out plenty of times). Everything we've tried has been great. A couple of favorite items are: Aloha Enchilada, Taquitos, or the Chimi. You really can't go wrong. The fresh chips and salsa are so good that... More
