This is the second time we have eaten here. The margaritas were not very good but the food was more than adequate. Not crowded but nice and quiet.

Loved the Tacos Al Pastor. Service was prompt. Soccer was on. Music and atmosphere were authentic. Salsa wasn't super awesome just Ok. Staff has a good time. Worth the price. Beer is on tap.

Authentic Mexican food. Lots of menu choices. Best in town. Fastest Service of any restaurant in town. You can barely finish the free chips and salsa (or awesome queso dip) before your meal arrives.

Had a #10 combination . Food was hot and taste good. Sweet tea was good. Staff friendly and fast to greet u. Got there at 6pm and place was pack . Only waited about 15 min for food. Price for 3 combination plate and 3 drinks was 36.00. Not bad for the amount of food.

Great service, friendly staff. Asked for 'authentic' Mexican and was guided to some great street tacos that were delicious. The first selection they suggested had seafood in a cream sauce. Not being familiar with this particular dish, I inquired if there was any place in Mexico that would serve it. Our server discreetly admitted no, and steered me in a... More

We were welcomed and taken to our table and instantly we had home made chips and salsa. The menu is huge and full of authentic dishes which was quite unbelievable to see. Meals can quickly and reminded me of some of the off the road restaurants I have eaten at in Mexico. I wish we had one of these restaurants... More

My hotel recommended this as a local favorite as I'm not a fan of chains. When I arrived I was the only person there and was a bit concerned, but it very quickly filled to capacity. I wound up being originally served by the manager who then transitioned my service to a waiter. Both were friendly and kindly checked in... More

Food is good.... Sometimes they can be stingy on the portions... It's plenty of food, but sometimes the value for what you pay isn't great. We still go there plenty. Love there chips and salsa!

Stopped in for lunch just after 12 noon on a Saturday. Promptly seated, and waiter was there immediately for drink order. Order was promptly taken and food delivered in a reasonable time frame. The food was delicious. Both the wife and I had combination plates. Only possible shortcoming was the waiter not providing additional napkins, but the service was very... More

Been here a few times and have never been disappointed. Food is consistently good and it's people from Mexico waiting on you and making your food, just what you want in a Mexican restaurant. Only negative is the service can be slow at times, otherwise a great place to eat.
