The food was delicious. Our waitress forgot that I didn't want red sauce on my burrito but she was able to get it corrected quickly. Service was great. Would eat here again.

Stopped in for an early dinner. The food is good. It is very authentic Mexican fare. The service was attentive but there was a lack of communication with the waiter and I ended up with the wrong drink. Enjoyed the meal, would go back.

We ate here for a late lunch and the food was very very good and the portions where large enough to take a plate home.

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants we've eaten at, and the service was excellent. I highly recommend it!

Friendly place with large portions and great salsa. Cheese dip is excellent and the chips are fresh. Margaritas are large with a good amount of tequila. Inexpensive and fast service.
