We stopped in around 2PM on a week day. We were the only customers. The servive was good and the food pretty decent. I had a combination plate that included a tamale. It was very good and we will be returning there next summer.

My favorite place to go when feeling like Mexican food. The prices are very affordable and the food is delicious! Service has always been good when I've been there; polite, quick and always walking around to see if anything else is needed. Margaritas are fantastic and come in a variety of sizes.

I think we may have interrupted the servers day. The menu's were caked with food bits, we are not into scratch... More

The food delivered was sub-par. It reminded me of a microwave frozen meal, although I think the frozen meal would have been better. Service was non-existent. Seats torn, table dirty, bathroom was incredibly filthy. I ordered "beef enchiladas". Ground hamburger, with no flavor was the filling, with a store bought tortilla that was soggy and tasteless. Waiter did not come... More

We were happy to receive a gift certificate for this restaurant because they have always been a welcome change from the fast food in Oneida, while still being fairly quick. This time, though, it was not good. The chips were stale. The food seemed like it had been laying around a while, and our drinks were in constant need of... More

Stopped in tonite for dinner. Fast and friendly service. Had the Carnitas, tender and tastey. The Mrs. had quesidillas with chicken and the boy had shrimp tacos. Everything was delicious and overheard others commenting also how good the food 😋 was.
