Authentic Mexican food in a cozy environment. Often crowded but worth the wait. Family friendly. A little off the beaten path.

We always enjoy this place. Happy hour is the best for margaritas and the chorizo stuffed portobellos & fish tacos are phenomenal!

We have driven by this very popular restaurant many times and finally decided to have dinner there! their menu includes a number of gluten free options! The dinners, sangria and guacamole were all great. Diners may want to ask about the spiciness of some dishes!

This place has the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. The wait is so worth it. The place looks how a Mexican Rest. should look, like your in Mexico.
