We have been going to this restaurant for many years. The were first located in a place on Independence Blvd. that had an outside deck but moved a few years ago to this shopping center location. We miss sitting on the deck but the food, drinks and staff as as good as ever. It is a family owned and operated... More

Food was good, portions were ample and reasonably priced. Two dinners, a glass of sangria and fried ice cream came to $27. The service was fantastic, and we were approached by three different employees regarding whether our meal was okay. Very attentive!

Honestly, the majority of Mexican places taste the same to me. The service is really what makes or breaks the place. I had a coupon for here so I figured I would try it out since I was nearby. There was only one other table seated in the restaurant when I came for lunch. Service was still really slow, and... More

Typical Americanized Mexican food, but the service is terrific. They greeted us with politeness and smiles, served us traditional chips and salsas, then took our order. Just seemed like a few minutes and out came the meals. Price is fair for the amount of food given.

We visited for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The place was almost empty when we arrived. We ordered from the combination dinners instead of the usual lunch fare. They give both tomato & white cheese sauce with the chips. I had a combo #4 and the wife the combo #1 with rice; we got a side of refried beans to... More

Not my first trip to this restaurant. Food is generally very good and service outstanding. They can find a place for you to sit, even if they are busy. This trip was no exception, greeted by one of the owners the minute we entered, shown to a table large enough for all 9 of us. Drink orders taken nearly as... More

I'm so lucky this is my neighborhood Mexican restruant. They always remember my family, have great service, and plenty of tables. We NEVER have to wait forever like at the Mexican place down the road. Quick food, and not nearly as expensive as azteca, either. I really love this place. Try the carnitas! Ammmmaaaazing
