I was thoroughly satisfied with the variety and quality of the food, and by the looks of things this spot is well-loved by locals. I do not live nearby but if the packed restaurant is any indication of how locals feel, it's a huge success....More

On our recent visit here my family group was quite disappointed in the quality of the food. Our order of guacamole was too thick and had no taste of lime in it. It couldn't be scooped with a chip. The beef enchilada was good but...More

My favorite for Mexican food among several choices in Livonia. We have always had good service and food. I'm not a beer drinker, but they have an extensive selection of beers for the fan.
