We ordered the enchiladas supremos and steak and shrimp. Everything tasted great. We're lucky to get the same waiter and he always does an awesome job.

I love going to this place. They have some good Chicken Nachos. They give you enough to fill you up. So if you want some good Mexican food this is the place.
