Always popular; incredibly tasty salsa (hot sauce); great service, and food, two separate locations. Does not taste like Mexican TV dinners. This food is made with love.

I really liked the lighting and the fact that I could hear the conversation going on at the table. Great refried beans, hot sauce and chalupas.

Their margarita machine wasn't working and they don't make them on the rocks. The menu was limited just the regular beef or chicken enchiladas- nothing special. Nice staff.
