This is a casual and authentic Mexican restaurant. Their chips and salsa are tasty and both salsas are spicy! Their rice and beans are very good! My husband thoroughly enjoyed his enchiladas and I thought the corn tortillas were excellent. My dish had steak and shrimp and was quite unlike anything I've had (served in a tortilla bowl with chopped... More

At first the restaurant looked a little run down but nothing too out of the ordinary for a local place. The food was great and the price was right. The chicken chimichanga with queso sauce was perfect. I laughed at the sized of the drinking cups and didn't need a refill, but a longer straw would have helped.. :) I... More

We left the route to eat lunch. The food was good but not outstanding. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We will not make the effort to go back as it was pretty typical Mexican food.

The lunch specials are really good. Try the Mexican Chicken it is always wonderful. Their fajitas have lots of meat and the food is always hot and tasty. Great service.

Kind of loud and old school , but we love the food and have for years. My husband loves the Lomo Saltado and they always are happy to adjust his order just like he likes it.

I used to frequent this restaurant a couple of times a month until I found a big bug in the salsa they served! For some reason I haven't been back since? LOL I should have notified the health department.....but figured why bother? The waitress didn't seem that surprised and brought me some fresh salsa! Had to wonder what the kitchen... More

Fabulous Mexican food! I had the Smothered Burrito and it was exceptionally good. I also had the charro beans and they were as good as what my mother made. My mother only eats nachos when she goes to a Mexican restaurant and she said these were the best she ever had. The manager (albeit after we finished ordering) suggested the... More
