This restaurant has been here for a long time. I believe it is family owned. The inside could use a makeover however the food is great and prices are reasonable.

It's a great place to hand out with friends. They have $3 n $5 margaritas as specials on some days. The food is delicious. Feels like an authentic Mexican place.
