Fantastic Mexican food! Clean, friendly and excellent service. The portions are great, if you leave there hungry it’s your own fault. This is our new favorite restaurant!

When you walk in you're offered a tortilla with a sweet butter filling. Yum! The food is beyond excellent. I feel like we are treated like family. The ambiance is totally Mexican and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.

The combination plates are huge! When you walk in someone's grandmother is making fresh tortilla's and hands you one...a little too spicy for me but the bite I had was incredible before the heat hit :-) Virgin Pina Colada was awesome.
