The Pros: The place looked clean. Chips and salsa were good and they also included a small bowl of refried beans. The Cons: Slow service (placement of order and receiving food) $1 for additional chips (really?) I'd asked for tortilla soup ... they didn't have...More

I used to go here but I haven't for a couple of years. The service was extremely slow even in the lounge. I always go to the other Mexican restaurant in town along with many of the other locals

This place has great Mexican food, and in large quantities. We always get together here as a family, because they have the room to accommodate us all. The staff is also super friendly.

I will go to eat here on my lunch and the taco bar is not well publicized and I love it I can eat until I am full and still have a dollar in my pocket when I leave.

Sometimes the food is really good, Sometimes not. Sometimes friendly, Sometimes not. Booths are uncomfortable. Not my favorite place in town.

Wonderful food! Beautifully decorated and so clean - even the restrooms. Cozy. Food was served hot and in a timely manner, even though they were quite busy. I can see why!
