They have the best salsa for the corn chips. The food is excellent as always. Service is excellent, they take good care of the customers. The sangria is very good. The guacamole is great. A great place to bring the family.

I was surprised when I visited, the service is on point. Waiters are very attentive, large portions and they offer appetizers and dessert on the house. If you are craving cheesy Mexican food stop in!
