Ate dinner here last night the food was good, very large portions and reasonably priced. The staff seemed to be hurried but no need as it wasn’t that busy, didn’t receive the attention that you would expect at a restaurant. Overall I would recommend this...More

Very average Mexican food, which was warm and filling. Good salsa. They offer a nice variety but not so much you are overwhelmed by choices. The house special pork was phenomenal. Average rice and beans, average margaritas. It’s a small town, so they met my...More

I was a bit disappointed in the food. It did not taste as good as I had hoped. My friends had the same opinion. I had an enchilada and a chimichanga. My margarita was good though. We asked to be seated on the back patio...More

Had dinner on the patio which was also being used as a storage area. Could be nice if they fixed it up. The food was terrible as well. I ordered nachos and barely ate any as they were cold. Pretty hard to mess up nachos!
