This Provo standard is all about consistent American-style Mexican Food and won't disappoint. Not extraordinary, just reliably good Mexican food, and much better than most of the pretenders.

Ordered an uber delicious combo plate and was very satisfied. Left my belly full along with my wallet! Also order some horchata, this was a great choice as well. The salsas and enchilada sauce were authentic. Great flavor and a perfect spice! Thanks!
