This is delicious, authentic Mexican food and we've never been disappointed. As always, we started with the small guacamole and I had the chicken chimichanga dish, which is huge and my husband had a burrito with pork carnitas dish. I don't like beans, and they were happy to prepare my chimichanga without and to give me a salad instead of the side beans. There is absolutely no fancy decor, but we go for the food.

This is a fantastic mexican food joint. Don't expect fancy or exceptional service, but the food delivers. An authentic eatery with great flavours. We had to ask for their extra spicy salsa and it was delicious. Favourites are the beef barbacoa tacos and chicken flaoutas.

We love the food...or we used to....so we put up with the slow service and uncomfortable chairs but lately the food is a little lack luster and the prices have gone up.

Don't expect linen table cloths but the food isn't served on paper plates either. The first time there the service was great our second trip not perfect. The location isn't in the best area but for all of that the food is what sets this place apart. Fresh ingredients and large portions make this a great value.

Been here a few times now and brought our adult children and they raved about it. Food is authentic and excellent, very fresh and service is pretty good. Atmosphere is "authentic"! I really felt like I was in Mexico. Definitely go and try it.
