Prices are very reasonable. Lots of seating. Bright and cheerful. Food is excellent! Beer selection is great- wine is not. Marguerites are not with tequila so just ok. Service is great. Variety in the menu.

I have been eating Mexican food for 66 years. And this place was undoubtedly the worst! The salsa was yucky! The cheese enchilada cold and doughy, the rice horrible, the defied bans tasted funny. But the soft beef steak taco was good, I have to...More
