I recently had a Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy and after two months of nothing but Liquids and soft proteins, I was so ready for Mexican food, but I can only have the protein and then veggies, etc... So I spoke to Gilberto, the owner, and he told me to order whatever I wanted and they would make me a special plate... More

I LOVE their Carne Asada.....comes with corn or flour tortillas...a good supply of refried beans, rice and guacamole sauce....delicious!!! Their margarita's are large, cold, rimmed with salt and tasty. You get the never empty chips and salsa. Service is good..some of the waiters have been here for years. It gets crowded at dinner time...because of the good food.

Great atmosphere, service is pretty good, the staff is friendly and oriented to details, the food is really tasty, carne asada and Cocktail Shrimp are my favorite. If you never try it before it is time to do so.!! It will be a totally good experience with family, or friends.

The three of us dined here and it was okay. Guacamole was excellent and good cheese enchiladas; but I was disappointed with my ground beef chalupa. The beef was greasy and salty, shell tasted stale. Service was good for amid a packed restaurant. I'm going to go back and try it out again but during lunch time. Overall, good portions... More

We took out of town relatives for a quick dinner and they were very impressed with the quality and quantity of the food, as well as the diverse menu choices. We have always experienced quick and friendly service and a pleasant atmosphere.

We stopped here for dinner based on all of the great reviews. The service was prompt and friendly but the food was far from good Mexican food. Taco Bell serves a better ground beef taco and as for the chicken enchilada it was flavorless. Entire entree plate was dripping in greasy cheese. I have had much better Mexican food.
