“Best Authentic Around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

I have been frequenting this restaurant since it has opened a couple years ago. It is the best authentic mexican in the area. The wait staff has largely remained the same so it is nice to be recognized and then thanked for your patronage on the way out.

“Authentic, to every interpretation of the word.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2011

I've been to multiple "authentic" mexican restaurants around the country, where typically food is frozen thrown in an oven stirred and called mexican. As a former (unbiased) employee, I can say with legitimacy they shave and process (by which I mean grind and chop by hand, no machines) their own meat down, chop all of the lettuce, tomatoes and onions each night, even whip their own sour cream, so you know its fresh. All the wait staff are kind and courteous, regardless of their mood. However I never name names, as they all do their job well, but if your waiter ever happens to be a smooth talking suave appearing mexican with a name starting "aug", coming from a good christian he truly is the utmost human slime I have ever met. Besides that one little kink, I would recommend this restaurant to ANYONE with a knack for mexican food, its simply wonderful. Great service (beautiful women) and amazing food, as well as the authentic mexican hospitality we see less and less in America today.

“Great place to eat... surrounded by locals.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

Prices are reasonable, large amount of seating, service prompt. Waiters are personable and many twinkle with a bit of humor to make your eating experience happier. Love the margaritas which have a bit of a punch. It is not fancy, not "cheffie" but you receive a reliable Mexican entree. Chips and salsa kept overflowing. No hidden charges. Colorful and fun decorating. If it is your birthday you get to put on a giant sombrero, have waiters come to sing to you AND your photo is taped on the wall. Kids go there for Homecoming dinners... Prices agreeable. All ages, all kinds!
