Food and service were very good and fast. There was nothing to complain about. Go there if you do not search an expensive gourmet experience, but a good an rich meal for a fair price.

The food here was quick and inexpensive...but coming from San Diego, our expectations of what quick Mexican food would be was not what we got. It wasn't bad, just not what we were used to (no rolled tacos!!) The beans tasted to me like garbanzos, not the usual pinto beans used in refried beans...not sure if that's true, but that's... More

Stick to the tacos at this place - decent. The carnitas was a bit dry (over fried) but the carne asada was delicious. Service is super quick and also very inexpensive. The burrito was meh - the wrap was not grilled, and it lacked any strong flavor. But then again, my basis for comparison is El Farolito in SF Mission.

I am a local so I have visited almost every month of the year. I would put them in my top 4 Mexican Restaurants. The food is good, the service is excellent, and the prices are more than fair. My only negatives would be the place does not have much atmosphere and no views. But if you want good authetic... More

We ate here because it was close to our lodging. But we were pleasantly surprised because the food is so good. These were the best chicken fajitas I have had in a long time. However, there is no ambience...it is like a cheap diner inside and it was quite chilly.

A free cup of soup with every order. I usually live on the Mexican Mainland nine months out of the year, and am used to good traditional Mexican food. What I find is that most Mexican restaurants copy their menus from Baja, which is more bland in nature , or they modify the menus to please their "Gringo" patrons. All... More

This restaurant catered for a conference I was attending. They were very professional and the food was good. Our requirements were pretty simple but they made a great meal for us.

I have had a lot of awesome authentic Mexican food and this was nothing special. My husband and son ordered tacos and it came with only the meat and tortilla, rice and beans on the side. So garnishments (it was to go). They said it didn't taste very good. Will not go back.
