Very good authentic Mexican food. The place was busy and it is easy to see why. I ordered the "arroz con pollo" and my wife the "fajita mix", both were great.

The cost for a jarritos pineapple soda, a flavored margarita, and grilled chicken smothered in Mexican rice and white cheese sauce was $18. The cheese sauce has to be enjoyed on everything you eat! It is the best queso EVER! I have yet to find a place across the country that can beat or duplicate it!

Met a coworker for lunch. Came here because of previous good reviews. Ordered huevos con chorizo. It came out burnt. The waiter didn't bring my drink till the food came. The staff kept chatting up their Spanish speaking friends instead of waiting on other guests. The Spanish speaking friends of the restaurant workers kept using racial slurs in Spanish that... More

The food had great flavor and the staff was great. Made sure that you were a satisfied customer. The salsa was not that spicy but yet still good.
