Like to make diner out on a Saturday evening an adventure! Found this place next door to where I get my manicure. From the window it looked really nice. Colorful Mexican style furniture, Mexicans running it. Staff friendly but couldn't understand most of what they were saying & not sure they understood me! Guacamole was really spicy, never had it like that before, rest of food was mediocre, not great but not horrible either. Have had better Mexican food at other places. Probably will not go back.

We eat here frequently, as food is always good and the wait staff are tops! On our last visit, we had seven kids with us--no problem for the wait staff. They set tables together quickly and gave their usual excellent service.
It is in a strip mall, so not easily noticed by anyone who doesn't know of it. It is, however, always busy, seemingly with local people.

We have a large group that meets on Thursday nights and this is our favorite haunt. Thursdays they have the deluxe nachos on special. They are smothered in cheese with beef, chicken and shrimp. Huge beers are $3.50, so large you'll need two hands. The nachos are enough for two to share. We also love the wait staff, they are local and very friendly, and always there to refill salsa or our beers. You can't go wrong with this place!

This is a place near my work so it was a choice when we wanted to go out on lunch or dinner break. It is not a fancy place and in is a strip shopping center, but is a consistently great place to go. I don't know how they do it, but it almost seems like we put in our orders, they bring the drinks with chips and salsa, and in the next trip here comes our sizzling hot orders that taste of fresh preparation. Why can't other places do that? This means that we truly get almost a complete dinner hour and not order and wait 30 minutes and then shove down our food. The menu has lots of choices with dinners, combination platters, as well as items to be ordered individually. Everything is always fresh and delicious. A great neighborhood place with great service.
