Read the reviews and were looking forward to do good Mexican food as a change from all the wonderful seafood. We were so disappointed. Flavorless and bland. Hopefully we just visited on a bad night.

Carne Asada tacos and fries were great. Average price for the area, but quality is well above average. Right on the highway, outdoor seating only, cash or credit, very good quality. If you need tacos, this is your place.
