After the manager came over and asked us if we had been helped, a waitress came by and took our order. The food tasted good but my burrito didnt have much meat in it.

Restaurant was clean; staff was friendly; and food was really good. A little pricey but worth the money.

Waited for the food for an hour and the manager wouldn't even come to let us know what's going on . Went to talk to her and she said that our order didn't even make to the kitchen. Very bad management.More

We ate dinner here with our party of 10. We were seated in a long bench, and we were very cramped for elbow room. The food was subpar for what I was hoping for. We were all a bit disappointed.

We've eaten at many Mexican restaurants but this one doesn't measure up. The food was just so-so. Not much flavor at all. Definitely will not be on our list to return to.
