Our waiter was truly unpleasant. He acted as though he hated us, hated his job, and hated being there. What a schmuck.
The food was very good, and the prices reasonable....but we will never go back after having been treated so poorly. Will spend our money somewhere that cares about customers, and will recommend that others do the same.

just simple mexican family food. very high quality food, very tasty and VERY well priced. The bar tender was hustling her behind off but still took great care of me. as usual in any family run mexican restaurant in america the salsa is crap, until you grab a busboy and ask for some of the salsa caliente that they eat in the back. the hot salse here was incredible, made with habaneros and had a wonderful smoky flavor. the guacamole that came on the side of the entree was really tasty and had a ton of flavor. pork canitas were a different take, more like mexican pork pot roast but still really carefully seasoned with lots of herbs and a nice sauce on it too.

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants that we have in this area. Ample portions- I can usually make 2-3 meals out of a single order. Staff are always pleasant. Would recommend this place to anyone!
