Good food, fast and the shredded beef burrito has homemade shredded beef since I did find a bay leaf in there...luckily it was on the edge, and I did not chomp on it! Sometimes I eat at the bar and the bartender always recognizes me....More

Every time I've been it's been great service and good food. Sometimes I'll skip it if the parking lot is too full but otherwise, they do a great job of serving up some great Mexican food.

I got hungry for Mexican food- drove out of my way and wasn't disappointed. Service excellent- food unique ( I mean that in a good way). 😎

Been going here since I was as a kid... Now in my 30's. Still is fantastic. The atmosphere seems very authentic. The cheese dip is wonderful along with the free chips and salsa! The wait staff were very friendly and kept our drinks topped off....More

We eat here about once a month, always on Tuesdays for their 2 for 1 margarita special. Portions are a good size and the food is good. I did notice that the chips are now thicker and not as good as they used to be,...More

This is one of our "go to places" for a good mexican meal. The Happy Hour is awesome, the chips, salsa and queso are awesome. Our favorite are the Chimichanga's (ground beef) with the green sauce or with caso blanca. Another favorite is the Pollo...More
