They have amazing food! We got the taco salad and the steak fajitas. I mixed the refried bean dip with the taco salad. My MIL got the fajitas and there were a lot of vegetables in it! Very very fresh!

Went here with my son and a few of his classmates. What a wonderful atmosphere with a very Mexican feel. The chips and salsa mixes were very tasty as were the entrees. We were impressed too with the reasonable prices. Definitely going there again.
