Govea's was sold. It is now Tres Amigos. We have been going to Govias for years. As soon as you walk in, you can see and feel something is different. We commented how everything that was Govias was gone, all the decor, all the home feeling you got before has now faded away. We settled at our table and ordered... More

Delicious food, tasty margaritas. The people make you feel at home the minute you come in. Everything we've had has been great. Love the shrimp enchiladas, chicken enchiladas, tacos, burritos. Warm, crispy chips, salsa not volcanic - did not make tears stream down my face. Just spicy enough. Yummy rice. Lots and lots of menu choices and options. Great for... More

Have been here several times and enjoy the carnitas and just about everything. Their sauces are spicy and the chips are tasty as well. Sit down and enjoy!

This resturant is great for going out to eat with friends or for a casual date. The food is great and for the quality food you're getting the price couldn't be better.
