Very nice restaurant with good atmosphere. The food is tasty and the prices are reasonable. A free parking is available right by the place - very convenient. If Mexican food is your game, you should consider paying Enrique's a visit.

My biggest gripe here is that they are always busy and it's hard to get a table! They need a bigger restaurant to accommodate all of us that want to eat there. The food is FABULOUS! Everything is absolutely DELICIOUS!

Great crowded family atmosphere, excellent service, but the food suffered the old syndrome of quantity over quality. Huge servings of interesting innovative dishes just doesn’t always make for great food. That said, I’ll go back, but in a sharing mood.
