“Average Mexican Food”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

We stopped here on a whim, and this place was alright. The dining room was very warm as though the a/c was not working or not turned on. The food was average, I had the chorizo tacos and they were pretty good, and my wife had the nachos, there was plenty of meat but the beans were bland and they microwaved it. The whole situation inside also is odd as they assume you know their operation and there appears to be a language barrier. The gentleman running register although was nice was odd and didn't want to do anything other than run the register. I would stop here again if other choices were not available.

“Decent, standard Mexican”

Pupusas are pretty good. I love the pickled cabbage that gets put on it.
