Two of us ordered the Elvis with different meat and cheese - both tasted great. Our third person ordered her usual and was happily satisfied as we were with the food, service and ambiance. Looking forward to our return.

This is a really neat place. Totally a neighborhood hang out for kids and families. You should try it. The setting is in a cramped strip shopping center from the 1960s. The parking lot will make you want to drink a few margaritas. Once inside,...More

We serve fresh Mexican dishes homemade in our kitchen daily. We have a salsa bar with freshly made salsas that range from the mild to the wild. We also offer BBQ with a South of the Border twist. Our tequilas and beer taps are always changing! Check out our daily specials and bring the family to Sunday Brunch!
