A busy local Mexican eatery with great house margaritas.... and the food is good too. The servers are knowledgeable about the menu, and are friendly and attentive despite being very busy. All in all recommended for a cantina style meal.

Took some customers here this week for a fine meal. Good service with all of the normal TEX-MEX standards. Will have to try more of the menu in the future. Had some little burritos covered in cheese and they were tasty.
