I wouldn't call this a restaurant. There are a few tables but it is basically a take out place. I would never go here for dinner. We left to find a more suitable place for dinner.

Cheap, well made, simple but detailed menu, this is the only Mexican in miles that will give you something for your craving of Tex-Mex meals. I recommend the Plain Jane.. but there is a lot to choose from ;)

Stopped by for a snack/late lunch. Had the soft tacos with chicken and beef. The shells are warmed and the meats had good flavor. It came with avocado, red onions, fresh cilantro, and sauce. Tasty. The restaurant is in a strip mall near the University of Rhode Island. Convenient, free parking is available.

Thank Nisty_13
