Family style restaurant, bright and colorful interior. Extensive menu. Quality food and large portions. Friendly service. Doesn't take very long to get your meals. Reasonably priced.

You can never go wrong with ordering anything on the menu. Prices are great, you get a lot of food for your money. Try the Enchiladas Poblanas, it is to die for....yum, yum.

This was the worst service I have ever had!! We did not get our food for over 2 hours. We got no apology and when I went back in to talk to management - I was told oh well. I will never go back there...More

We ordered the two burrito meal (1 chicken and 1 beef) and the meal was ok. If in a rush, this could be a good choice of restaurant and we were served and out in 20 minutes.
