Rude staff unwilling to accommodate large parties. Very impersonal. The food that we (finally) received after an hour was just okay.

Two of us ordered the Latin Lover, which we could choose which enchiladas and tacos we wanted. All were really good. My Gram orders a chicken and cheese thing which was really good but super spicy. Very good chips and salsa(lots of cilantro).

First time in town. Staying at a local hotel and they said there were some good restaurants in the area. Walked down the street and found this Gem. Food was exceptional, service was outstanding and I couldn't believe how reasonably priced it was for the...More
