“Average at best”
Reviewed April 4, 2011

Several years ago this place was a hidden gem. Not much ambiance, but truly great Mexican food and it was almost always busy.

A couple weeks ago we visited after a few years away from the area. We were quite disappointed. Service was fairly poor, even though we were the only people in the restaurant. And the food had gone from wonderful and authentic to average at best. The salsa on the table was OK, but the chips were cold and right out of a bag. The meats, (chicken, beef and pork were ordered in various forms) were largely flavorless. The refried beans were mealy and had little flavor. Taco shells seemed to be packaged shells that were a bit stale.

The only real good thing was that the portions were very good for the cost.

My guess is that the chef they had years ago was replaced with someone who should not be cooking for a restaurant. And by the emptiness of the restaurant I would suppose others in the area have figured that out as well.
