“A good choice for mexican.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

An old Burger King turned into a Mexican restaurant - then redone - right. This place has great food, enormous portions and friendly staff. Try some of the pork and feel like you are eating at a friend's home. Great quality and service in a local place. Nice bar menu as well. HUGE margaritas and all sorts of beers.

I had a seafood chimmichanga and it was awesome! The place was very clean and the service was great. I really liked my food. My husband had a steak quesadilla, which he enjoyed also. It was very authentic.

“Great place for Mexican food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We stopped here after driving by - glad we decided to try it! This place has only been open a few months and we will definitely be back. The decor is not the typical bright colors with sombreros and blankets. There are wall murals - but the color scheme is muted and relaxing. There is a patio with outside seating and an inside bar area.

We were here on a weekday at noon and were seated quickly. A basket of chips and salsa were on the table within a minute! The chips were light and crisp, the salsa was tasty with chunks of peppers, tomatoes and fresh cilantro. Both our lunch entrees were tasty and piping hot. The lunch menu is in the $6-$9 range. My pork burrito with cheese sauce was packed with moist roast pork. There was so much food on the plate that I ended up just eating the meat out of the burrito (too good to waste).

Location is good on Rt 2 close to the hospital and university. All the waitstaff were attentive and friendly. Next trip we will try the dinner menu and enjoy adult beverages - they have Pacifico and Modelo Negro on tap along with local favorites.
