I got the tacos with the side salad. The salad was delicious and fresh. The tacos were small but the flavor of the meat was delicious. There were plenty of chips and salsa.

Wednesday night. We eat lots of Mexican food, and this was better than expected. My pork chop was a little dry, but the roasted vegetables were excellent. My companion's vegan plate was quite good. There's also ice cream for sale.

Great food, and nicely sized portions. You won't go hungry! Free chips and a salsa bar for your choice in salsas. The side patio feels like a courtyard in Mexico.
