We've been coming to this restaurant since we moved here over 20 years ago. It's a family restaurant, and consistently excellent fare. We go by ourselves, with the kids, and almost always take visitors here. Don't miss the mole--it's the best we've ever had. Service...More

The non-pretentious family restaurant was a real find while at a soccer tournament. All five of us enjoyed the meal. The overall favorite was the pork burrito! Order the combo (pick three!) & try it with a couple menu favorites.

Outside of the building looks much better than inside, dining area is small, service was slow, food was fair. The shredded beef is terrible. The complimentary tortilla chips are excellent, though. Otherwise, this is one of the worst Mexican restaurants I've ever been to.

First off, I can't believe that anyone has a positive thing to say about the salsa! Horrible. Chicken was small stringy and dry bits, not even chunks of meat. No flavor. Enchilada would have been better straight off the Walmart shelf.(canned). I've traveled extensively throughout...More
