A brightly lit family style restaurant with a large menu of all the usual mexican foods except no guacamole as a salad or appetizer. Service was fast and friendly. Prices are reasonable.

We often look for local restaurants when we are in a new town, and this one was a few blocks from our hotel. It is located in a converted old house with a few different rooms for dining and also has an outside patio. Upon entering, a young man from Texas told us this was the best Mexican food he... More

This restaurant was next door to the inn where we were staying so we gave it a try for dinner. The atmosphere is very plain and so is the food. Taco's, Burrito's and very ordinary Mexican food served in a rather uninspiring environment Good service but it falls short where it counts. I will stop short of saying that the... More

We've eaten here multiple times with family. One of the biggest perks for us is that it's very wheelchair accessible, and they don't seem inconvenienced by it. However, we've also always enjoyed the food & price! They've got a good selection of Mexican favorites mixed-and-matched together or independently. I usually go with chicken enchiladas and my husband likes their chimichanga.... More

This restaurant was terrible. The food was way over cooked and was most definitely prepared ahead. The chicken was tough and my husbands meat was uneatable. Service was OK - we sat out on the porch and we felt like it was an inconvenience for anyone to come out and wait on us. Would never go back and do no... More
