If you can't cook Spanish food don't cook it at all. got the carne asada, it was the worst I've ever had, meat taste like beef jerky with some kind of bbq flavor, tortillas were like cardboard. had the tortilla crisp app everyone says is so good, it's just deep fried tortilla with cheese, really nothing exciting.

It had been years since I'd eaten at this restaurant. While I was in town recently, my friend wanted to stop there for dinner. Not wanting to say anything, I agreed to give it a try. What a mistake!! The inside is like a dungeon, probably dark to conceal the horrible conditions and just looks worn out and filthy. How they stay in business is truly amazing. Even more amazing is how the health department doesn't shut them down.

This is my favorite place to eat Mexican. You can also by salsa by the quart. My favorite food is the beef and bean tostada and the white cheese dip. They also have awesome salsa. If you don't like Mexican you can also go with hamburg, Philly steak and cheese, etc.
