One of my favorite Mexican restaurants. Great food and portions. The staff is nice and pretty helpful. Great salsa (very important) and chips. I love the wet burritos. Not expensive either. Great place.

If I remember correctly, I believe it's about $10 for the lunch buffet. Drink is extra. Make sure you go when it is busier so the food is kept fresh and replenished frequently. Do not go to this restaurant around 3:00 PM... More
