A favorite mexican food restaurant of ours. Place is small, but the food is large. Does not have the greasy mexican food taste. They do not serve any alcohol so if you want a drink you have to somewhere else.

Very average Mexican but the staff was friendly and we were seated and served fast. For the price it was not bad.
