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

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

My 83 year old mother has dietary restrictions and we went here for lunch one day and she took her caffeine-free diet coke in with us as they do not serve any caffeine free diet drinks. A male server proceeded to tell my mom she could not dine there unless she threw her drink away. There is no state law... More

This place seems always to be hopping with locals. The building is a bit tired and has been many things previously. But the atmosphere is enjoyable and it's always fun to eat at a place with such a loyal base. The question seems to come up often in these reviews of whether this place is authentic Mexican. The answer is... More
