The restaurant struck me for it's decor when I first walked in. I especially like the trio of sauces they served with the chips. The hottest sauce is served on request which one of our group ordered. He loved it! I had fajita tacos and...More

Thanks to a review on tripadvisor, we decided to try this restaurant. The food was excellent. Had avocado and sour cream enchiladas. Great tasting and very filling. My daughter ate tilapia with shrimp and scallops. Very fresh tasting.

If you want a Mexican meal that is not just cookie cutter this is a nice place to dine. The food is authentic and the portions are adequate. They have a very nice drink and beer selection. They also offer outside seating.

We wanted something light and decided to try that. They had very unique 3 kinds of salsa and very light taco chips. Wished we had a bigger appetite to try the other offerings.
