Best salsa in town! I met my daughter here for lunch, and we had the asada tacos. Love the fresh cilantro & lime flavor! Great staff too. This is definitely our favorite Mexican restaurant!

El Kroger is pretty solid Mexican food. As fluffy says, "it meat, cheese and vegetables wrapped in a flour tortilla and covered in red sauce."

We visited this restaurant with a large group and we were well pleased. Huge servings, extensive menu, attentive wait staff. Certainly one of the top Tex-Mex restaurants in the area !

El Charolais offers both American iced and traditional Mexican dishes. They traditional tacos are amazing! In fact, I have never had a dish that I did not enjoy from their menu. I would recommend this restaurant to others!
