“OK Once”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

quick seating and good service. Babies crying in all corners. The chips before dinner were small portions and tasted slightly stale. OK but not real crisp. The burrito I ordered was big and good. Not great but good. The lettuce didn't taste fresh. There was nothing bad about the place but nothing there that made me want to come back again either.

“Good Salsa”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

This place has been here for years and from what the locals tell me, the decor and menu have not changed either. It offered good mexican fare with reasonable prices. The salsa was delicious.
