Yummy Mexican American food. Not fancy outside, cute inside. Friendly staff. They refilled our salsa with a salsa picture :) Large serving size. My fav was the Tostada.

My husband and I enjoyed a dinner here. My husband had a very hearty chicken soup, which he loved. And I had the chicken quesidillas. I would have preferred a little more crisp on the tortilla but otherwise it was delicious.
