This was a wonderful surprise found in a unlikely location. A friend and I stopped here for lunch on a whim and I was delighted to taste some very nice Mexican food for a change. Service was prompt and courteous and suggested the pork entree I had for lunch. Wonderful mix of heat and taste. Margaritas were very nice -... More

I heard this restaurant was owned by the same person that owns Adelita's (one of our favorite Mexican restaurants) so we wanted to try it. It was definitely not as good as Adelita's. The restaurant is so loud that we couldn't hear each other across the table. The food was ok but not as good as their other restaurant. I... More

Atmosphere is pretty typical for a small town Mexican restaurant, but the food is what brings you back. Service is efficient and the beer (bottled only) is cold. Chips and salsa are above average and you get free refills. The fajitas are a favorite and the portion size is robust. Good for a quick mid-week dinner.

I have been there with friends and the staff is always helpful and courteous and works with my needs to alter the menu a bit. Beverages are kept fresh and filled!

We went to lunch with a group of friends and sat outside on the patio. We wished there was just a touch more shade but you can't control the sun 😆 The service was good and very swift. The food was decent but the chicken was a little waterlogged. The queso was amazeballs. Soooooooo yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As a family we eat here a lot. Every time we have enjoyed the wait staff and the food. The pork is always tender! You need to ask for the specail hot sauce that they make fresh in the kitchen, red or green. yummy! Jumbo margaritas to share sre always a hit.

My husband and I like to eat lunch at Villa's in summer and sit on their patio. The service is generally pretty good and the food is very good. My hubby gets the speedy and I typically get the fajitas.

I always have the crab enchiladas, which are amazing. The crab is the real thing, no imitation. My friends rave about the fajitas. Great salsa and queso, good dacqs and margs. The service is good, food comes quickly. They have a large room for big groups and outdoor seating in warm weather.

Food was ok. The ceviche was really good. Service wasn't great. We had to wait a while to get anything from our server.
