This place is crowded almost everyday. I passed this place for several years before I tried it. So glad I did! The waiter was nice and friendly in helping us decide what to eat. The food came hot and very tasty. We tried the Sangria...More

It's a neighborhood Mexican restaurant. The food is quite good, the Margaritas plenty, and the staff friendly. It's probably the closest to actual Mexican food that you can get in this area. Dinners come with an excellent tortilla soup, salad, and plenty of homemade chips.

The food is quite good. I like that it is close by and does not taste like the food is "pre-made". The salsa that comes with the chips is a little too spicy for my taste. I wish they would give you an option of...More
