We have good food every time. We usually go on Mondays for lunch. We went today on a Saturday and our meal was very good as usual. They have remodeled and everything looks great!

His doubts were promptly replaced with a satisfaction that has made it a family favorite. The meal I had was too big for lunch, but a picture on google images was open on my phone... More

Good is Good every other time. It is very inconsistent. The place is very Dirty. I would like for it to be good all the time but it is definitely different quality from one visit to the next. Maggie's Kitchen is down the road and the quality seems better if you don't mind more cost.

These are some of the best, and cheapest, tacos you'll find. We had two shrimp and two chicken tacos with the fixens (lime and grilled onions and peppers) for just over $10. This location is take out only.
