This is one of my favorite Mexican joints in Independence. The food is always good and the margaritas delicious.

The service here was excellent, and the food was average. It was not very flavorful and there was too much sauce. The salsa was good and the prices were reasonable.

It's your typical Mexican place with middle of the road prices, tons of combos, etc. Good salsa (fairly smooth, nice cilantro flavor). Good chips. Decent burrito. Not a very big burrito but good flavor (chicken). It was the special at $6.99 so I can't complain....More

Just good average food. Nothing stands out but a decent local of you’re craving Mexican. Salsa is good and chips are thin and normally fresh and warm.

My wife and I just had dinner here. My fajitas were great and she liked her taco salad. Portions are large for the price. I wasn't crazy about the chips and salsa but that's minor.
