Loved it! We had the huevos rancheros and the two beef tacos. Both were super fresh, flavourful and delicious! Plus, you get complimentary tortilla chips! The service was really good as well! We would definitely come back :)

Order at the counter and tableside delivery. Three types of salsas, chips and hot carrots complimentary. Tacos, shredded beef and chicken are truly mexican style. Refried beans addictive.
