We're transplants from S.Cal too, but 27 years ago. We're a bit disappointed in the food. Seemed really bland. Enchiladas not so tasty...chimichanga huge and ok. Cheese dip not so great. No problem, lots of places we like. Service was easy and pleasant.

Looks like you just do take-out but once you get inside you see there are tables. My brother enjoyed having a TV to watch soccer and the variety of choices on the salsa bar. It's a little spicy for my taste but the food portions...More

Probably eat here 10-12 times a year and never disappointed and never worry I will be. The roasted pork is great simmered in green chilies. Best Mexican breakfast choices around. Good salsa bar complemented with both fresh and marinated veggies. Decent beer selection. Chili relleno...More
