Some of the most authentic Mexican food around. Homemade chips are the best I have ever eaten. All the food on the menu is outstanding, my favorite is the seafood enchiladas. Drinks are well crafted.

What a gem. It's been around, apparently, since forever. We were served by the other's son - so service is good, fast, and efficient. Portions are large. Taste is good. The prices are very reasonable and the variety vast. If you like Mexican, don't be...More

The non-pretentious family restaurant was a real find while at a soccer tournament. All five of us enjoyed the meal. The overall favorite was the pork burrito! Order the combo (pick three!) & try it with a couple menu favorites.
