The food is decent. The beer is nice and cold. The prices were a bit on the high side for the area. The salsa is very tasty.

This place is hit & miss. Better Mexican Food choices in the area. Food at times is good, but never great. Service and quality is lacking.

The town stapke is very popular with good reason. The food is good, the service friendly and the prices reasonable. My favorite is the Taco salad with choice of meat or shrimp.

The Mexican food is always GREAT and served Quickly and at reasonable prices in the several years we have eaten here. The beer on tap is always cold and refreshing. The atmosphere is average but the servers have been top notch.

Everything was extremely fresh, with lots of vegetables, and some unusual menu items. We had a large group, but all the food came out quickly, and all the orders were correct.
