Very friendly waitstaff. Everything else was poor. The food was overpriced and unmemorable. Only your first basket of chips is free. You must pay for all the other baskets. There is a two drink limit! Very weird. Small number of drink options at best. Go...More

We have eaten here multiple times and find it to be a family friendly pleasant location with a variety of salsas for the chips and very good entrees. Our last meal included the carne asada which was excellent.

Wow! Great authentic Mexican food, with a wide selection of choices to choose from. A taco bar to pick your favorite salsa, etc. Very prompt service I might add too! Good selection of spirits and drinks.

I've always loved the food here, the fresh salsa bar, and the service. The food is authentic Mexican food from the Michoacan region. They have unique dishes like quail. Authentic Mexican food does not swim in cheese unlike some Americanized Mexican food.
