Dropped by for a late lunch and never can refuse carnitas. But the salsa and chips really filled me up before my entree arrived.

I have no issue recommending this place. The food is very good and so is the service. Two thumbs up.

Friday night, there was a little bit of a line, but it moved quickly and the food was served just as quick. Tacos, enchiladas, pastor plate all excellent. Also a cool vibe, but not too rowdy for a family to enjoy.

Excellent salsa and fresh ingredients you can definitely taste. Their nachos are very good and individually made. Great variety of food and plenty of parking. Indoor and outdoor seating.
