Good value, good food, good service. This is a very friendly and busy Mexican restaurante. Ate here many time over the months we were here working locally. Good size portions, piping hot food and friendly waiters. Good choices are the Chorri quesso (no good if your are on a diet) and I loved the Vegetable Fajitas. Beware the waiter tht... More

Insane lighting, like a runway strip. No bar tending, premixed margaritas and proud of it. So went with wine...in a plastic bottle. Reasonable prices but otherwise--lame? Save yourself go elsewhere...

Gave this restaurant a try while in the area. The chips, salsa, and cole slaw they provide were very good. However, ordered a chile relleno and not what I expected. To me, a chile relleno is a breaded, fried stuffed pepper, and what I got on my plate was a pile of refried beans with a chile chopped up into... More

We were a little suspicious reading the reviews. But we tried it. Food was good (hot burrito and steak fajita) although it didn't arrive at the same time. Margaritas are 'lime' and tasted like bottled instead of fresh. Slaw was a nice touch with the salsa. No issues with wait staff. If you have a craving for Mexican give it... More

Loved the cole slaw they served with the chips and salsa. Our enchiladas were good. Prices were very reasonable. A nice local eatery

This place probably needs management turnover to bring someone that will focus on the customer experience. The margarita as poorly made using a mix dumping the minimum amount of alcohol to barely pass. The food was bland and served in a way that said "hurry up and eat so we can turn the table." We won't go again and wouldn't... More

After reading some reviews, we were hesitant to go here for dinner. We are glad we did. In addition to salsa and chips, they brought a slaw which was unique and great with the chips. The ground beef enchiladas had a lot of meat and unlike other Mexican restaurants, they were not bland. My wife was very complementary of the... More

My wife and I shared the 5 Enchiladas plate and they tastes ok but we're not very hot. Every other Mexican place I have been to the food comes out piping hot with the cheese on melty. This place the meat was barely warm and the cheese wasn't melted very good and it was just not that hot. we had... More

We came in about 8 pm and we were seated right away. Service was so unfriendly. Right away we felt unwelcome. They did bring chips and salsa right away though but again, another clue we shouldn't have stayed. Not good at all. Tasted like store bought brand. Chips were warm but bland, not salted at all! We ordered the 5... More

The place is quaint, the portions are large and excellent. Free chips and several kinds of excellent salsa. A wonderful place to eat.
