My family and I have tried practically everything on their menu and have never been disappointed. The ingredients are fresh and dishes are always made to order. The chip and salsa bar is a welcome idea while you're waiting for your order. The owners are sincerely warm and interested in giving you an unforgettable experience..

Seriously- get the Fajita Burrito, both chicken and steak are great. Salsa bar is great too! Very friendly service as well.

I enjoyed he food from this restaurant although I have had better in Arizona. The food is fresh and presented nicely. I like eating in rather than takeout as the takeout was all jumbled together. In the restaurant the presentation is better. The casual atmosphere is to my liking and the people serving you are very, very nice.

Love this place! Salsa bar is amazing with about 10 different options. Delicious guacamole; our favorites are the burrito mas grande (shareable) and any of the wraps. Drink specials include a variety of beers and margaritas. Watch groupon for specials. Love to ride my bike there; great neighborhood place!

The staff is very friendly, However for Mexican food the quality and portion size is terrible for the price. There are hundreds of Mexican Resturants that will provide better food and better quantity for a cheaper price. I will never eat here again knowing that their are so many better options.
