While the restrooms were absolutely filthy..some of the food was good. The Brans and rice were delicious. the plates nice and warm, the presentation of the food was gorgeous. I had Beef enchiladas. they were just okay. Nothing special.

Fantastic Mexican food for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We mostly visit for breakfast. Carne asada, rice & beans, fresh tortillas, chips & salsa. Chilaquiles are delicious. Service is always fast. & friendly. Reasonable prices.
