Generous portions make sharing easy....and the food is fresh and just delicious. The margaritas are a specialty and they're very tasty - this is a delightful place!

Had a late lunch special of quesadilla and soup for $9.95. Soup was OK but too much chili heat and chicken quesadilla very dry.

This is the second time we have experienced the superb Mexican food. We had enchiladas and hueles rancherias. Both were excellent. The non-GMO corn chips were a real plus. The service was prompt and relationally excellent!
