Good food, Good service. Horchata's were really good. Great menu selection which explained what we were ordering. Bar selection seemed well rounded. Decent place for family and friends.

Good prices, great food. ACP and the chicken quesadillas are my two favorite. Ignore the feq negative reviews. People like that do nothing but look for a reason to complain and usually aren't being honest. Usually not busy except for prime dinner times.

Used to eat here all the time but have gotten out of habit. Service tonight terrible. Tables seated after us had orders taken and entered before our order taken. Chips cold and tasted stale, and never got better. Will think twice before coming here again.

We stopped here to meet a friend on our way through the state, traveling home. The food came out fast, hot and fresh. The chips and salsa were great, best house salsa I have had a a Mexican place in a long time, slight kick...More
