“Delicious Mexican Food!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

I Love their Carne Asada plate! Nice ambiance, a bit small and gets pretty crowded during lunch time, even on week days. I would pass up ordering the guacamole though, tastes and looks like something pre-packaged from the grocery store. But give the place a try!

“Amazing Hidding Gem!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is an excellent mexican restaurant. Great food, authentic and fresh, great service and amazing prices. went with family for a saturday buffet and "the all you can eat" with not only extremely inexpensive ($8.99 per person) but the variety and the qulity was simply outstanding. we will go back for sure. BTW the margaritas where big and strong. Love the mix they use as well.
They dont take reservation..line can be big on the weekends but totaly worth it.
