Service is great. A little pricey for mexican food but, the portions are extremely large too. I give it a solid 4.

We had the "dinner for 2" which comes flaming at the table. It served 4 of us with leftovers and was wonderful.

This is a small restaurant on main street with very tasty combos, burritos, seafood, and a very good salsa that comes out with chips. Prices reasonable and very nice servers. I'd come back.

We ordered the vegetable enchiladas, and my wife got a side of chile rellenos. The entrees were each too much for one person, and the side dish was almost as large as an entree. Half the meal came back as lunch the next day. I...More
