This place was very close to where we were staying, so we walked to it, and we weren't disappointed! The food was great, and came out fast. The staff were all very friendly. A very pleasant experience for someone out of town!

This restaurant is off the beaten track on a quiet street across from a park. It's family-run and they are unerringly polite and friendly. While Mexican isn't my favorite ethnic food theirs is good and always enjoy going there.

My husband & I were traveling through town so we chose this Mexican restaurant based on its reviews. Our overall impression of the food we ordered was that everything was very salty & ingredients used were generally of poor quality. Very disappointing.

We try hard to support local diners, and this one will be easy to support over and over. Cheerful staff, prompt service, great food. We ate omelets two days in a row, and they were excellent. Fresh ingredients, homemade in every way.
