I went about 8:30 in the morning. Things were steady, but not busy. The breakfast was good. Service was good. This place is not the cleanest. Mexican language stations on the TV. The special was 3 tacos, but all three have to be the same kind. Who wants to get three tacos of the same kind?

Left a review on Yelp. This place was dirty outside and worse inside! Clutter everywhere, a filthy aquarium half-full of algae water, supplies stacked against the walls, and half-painted walls. While the food was not that bad we lost our appetite with the the environment which ruined our dining experienced.

Kind of a hole in the wall place, but the food is good. The refried beans are home made and delicious! The tortillas are freshly made and super good.

Service was excellent. I asked for a plate with enchiladas and a taco with rice and beans. They made one for me custom. We ordered water with Lemon or Lime. Big glasses of water and a bowl of Limes and Lemons sliced up. The chips were made there, not store bought. The picante sauce also made on site was good... More

Food was bland and not good, the place seems more like it should be south of the border.... nasty, poor ambiance, service sucked too, a good place to avoid!

Both my daughters became very ill after eating here. Positive lab results and we know this is where they picked it up because their friend went to ER also and was positive for shigella also. This is the only place they all ate together. They were so sick very harmful food Bourne illness.

The restaurant was kinda dirty and the food was just ok, I won't need to go again. The service was slow and inattentive.

I tried it out. Won't stop again. Food and service was very mediocre, fairly cheap though. Better Mexican food elsewhere.
