“Best Mexican restaurant for miles....”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

We love this restaurant and usually go once a week. It is busy & cramped with typical Mexican decor. The Friday night specials are usually very good, but my personal favorite is the Ceviche. If Ceviche is on the menu do not miss it!

The service is quick and efficient and the tables are turned quickly. Due to the cramped nature, this isn't a place to have a quiet, intimate dinner. That said, the food and service makes up for the tight tables.

Try the Chicken Mexicana for a spicy change of pace.

Hector is the owner and has had the same staff for years. Everyone is friendly and are always happy to see us. Don't miss it.

“WONDERFUL but only go when Hector the owner is there, 11- 3 or so.”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

The best mexican around! been going for 17 years, Hector is the BEST. I have only been unsatisfied once and Hector, the owner, wasn't there. Will only go when he is there.

“Great Mexican Food”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

This is one of those typical Mexican restaurants that every town has with the chips and dip. But for one of those, we think this has the best food. Really nice people, too.
