Mexica, good food, friendly staff, yummy coices, budget friendly. But, we just get everything we like and take home what we don't eat.

Good Mexican food choices. Not my favorite Mexican place but pretty good. I do like their Green Verde Sauce.

The place was almost packed at lunch on a Saturday but our food came out rather quickly hot and fresh. The have lunch specials everyday on their menu. The salsa was ok nothing special but the beef fajitas were very good and plentiful.
