This is one of my favorite Mexican Restaurants in Pickerington. Portions are huge, food is very good. Not as authentic as Mexico, but pretty close. Great drinks and very lively on weekends.

Have been here three times in the last couple of months. Have never had a bad meal or bad service. They are all very friendly and their drinks are very strong. Yummy!!
