and they got both orders wrong. As someone with food allergies, if I ask you to leave off that item, I expect you to leave it off. With the upcharge for the delivery service, my burrito came to 15. WILL NOT BE BACK HERE

You can smell this place as soon as you get out of your car. We were seated right away. They had a small buffet but we decided on the fajitas for two. You get a generous portion of fajita but there are more vegetables than meat. You only get one serving of beans and one serving of rice with salad... More

Real Mexican-style rice (arroz.) Wide ranging menu. One of the few places that serves my favorite Mexican beer (Bohemia.) The two of us were full and even... More

From the outside, this is not the type of place that you might normally choose to stop at. It's in a strip mall and the decor is, well, not impressive. Inside it has a bar on one side of the restaurant and mostly booth seating around the rest of the place (comfy seats, by the way). Lots of TVs so... More

Our family has been going to this neighborhood restaurant for over 15 years! Owners of Mexican descent this restaurant has a menu not on the menu. I love their whole fried fish and I tried goat tongue( wouldn't have that again!) Not fancy but always good and reasonably priced!
