Umm Really what is this on this plate ?! How does this place stay in business? When you have two other really good Mexican places to go in this town! There is no way this is cooked food, It has to be frozen prepared dinners... I think it is terrible and would not recommend to anyone!!

The free chips and salsa are a nice appetizer. The bean burritos are great, especially with a half (small) bowl of yellow cheese sauce poured over each one. The sirloin tips with onions and peppers are flavorful and WELL worth the lunch special (or regular) price but be prepared to chew. I have tried some of the authentic items and just don't like AUTHENTIC Mexican food. I LOVE Tex-Mex. A couple of reviewers below must have never had real Mexican food before. This tastes like EVERY authentic Mexican food I've ever tried. We used to eat here every week or so, but moved and we miss our weekly burritos bad! The service is ALWAYS very good and friendly.

Service was a bit slow, food was bland and not hot - just warm. First mexican restaurant I've been to where the plates were cold. The chimichanga was buried under a load of cheese sauce. Probably won't be back.

Service was mediocre, food was bland, one guest I was with couldn't finish his meal, he said it tasted like pure grease! Not authentic at all!

The food, no matter what you get, is saturated in grease. Barely any taste, except lard, the place is also not cleanly; I expect the low lighting even at lunch is because of this. This is a terrible place, go to Tampico instead where just their salsa tops anything in this place.
