Not worth the price they charge. The "salsa" is nothing more than enchilada sauce. Chips are out of a bag. Everything tasted very pre-fab. Ordered the Chimichanga because it was on special, but at best it was just blah - dry and tasteless. Waitress was pleasant but won't go back.

One of my favorite Mexican restaurants run by the Barrios family. However, I think their Bolivian food is the best around.

The service was fair, the waitress was not good. The food tasted good, but mostly ground beef. I had a taco, and enchilada and the taco was soggy.

In the last year, the waitstaff has changed and the service is MUCH better. The food continues to be really affordable and plentiful, and is now complimented by good service.

My family and I have eaten here off and on for several years. We have a waitress whom we try to get whenever we visit, but it is not always possible. Whenever we get anyone else, we KNOW the service is going to be awful. Dont expect your drinks to be refilled, your chips will not be refilled either. If... More
