This classic tex mex restaurant hits the spot. But remember that real Tex Mex is cheesy, greasy, and spicy. The interior is designed to look like an outdoor mercado (Mexican shopping area), so it's fun to think you're really in Mexico.

Great salsa with lots of cilantro and not too much onion, homemade tortillas, great kids meals and large portions. Even better, they let you order a lacarte for picky people like me. Food was delicious!

Waiters seemed confused as to who we belonged to.... Food not as good as expected. With my normal selection, variety is key or the ability to interchange my choices. This was not a restaurant that offered that ability. I can normally tell how good the food of a mexican restaurant by the tamale or lack of chance of getting one that day. I don't think it was available.
