A free cup of soup with every order. I usually live on the Mexican Mainland nine months out of the year, and am used to good traditional Mexican food. What I find is that most Mexican restaurants copy their menus from Baja, which is more...More

This restaurant catered for a conference I was attending. They were very professional and the food was good. Our requirements were pretty simple but they made a great meal for us.
