The food is good BUT the waiters could not give a defiinition of what a customer is, if they were held up at gunpoint. The waiters speak in spanish about the customers and laugh and are so RUDE that it isn't any wonder why they will be stuck in a 3 dollar job for the rest of their lives. The complete rudeness and disrespect for a customer, far outweighs how good the food is. I've been there 50 times, and been treated rudely 50 times. Go to Seniorita.

I love this local restaurant. The colorful booths (wish I had taken a picture!) and decor comes from Mexico. The food is delicious and the wait-staff is friendly. This was our third visit. We were a group of 4, and all of our dishes were hot, delicious and appealing to the eye.

There is a wide variety of drinks and old staples - Margarita's and much more. They have virgin daiquiri's for the kids, too.

Beats the only other Mexican restaurant hands down! You won't get a bad meal here - and they had posted a Trip Advisor sticker on the door. Way to go!

The tables and booths are very colorful and interesting to look at. Service was very good. Food was good too but does not compare to Sagebrush Cantina in Lake Orion, MI.
