“Beware the hair!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

The atmosphere was good, the food was tasty, but we found hairs in two separate dishes. I ordered the Burrito El Grande and found a hair underneath the burrito on the plate. I asked for another burrito, this time to go (I had lost my appetite by this time), and when I went to eat it the next day, I pulled out another long hair from inside the burrito! Disgusting...we will not be returning. Watch out for your food!

“Very good food”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

The food is typical of most mexican restaurants, but it was better than most. Our group had a large variety of dishes. I had a chicken and vegie quesadilla that had a white cheese sauce on top-delicious! The decor is fun and inviting. Much better tahn another local mexican restaurant.
