This is our favorite Mexican food in the area. Their fajitas are full of veggies including zucchini and the chicken ones are my favorite, my husband likes the fajita burrito, my daughter likes the carne asada tacos, my son and daughter in law's favorites are the chicken burrito bowls and finally their ceviche is full of flavor!

Dine in or take out. As is the case for the neighboring Cancun Restaurant, unfortunately, "Authentic" means you might get lots of fat and knuckles in the chicken dishes, hot indoor dining in the summer, and hit/miss service...just like middle-brow dining in Mexico.
