The food no offense is too salty and fake, If I new it was gonna taste like imitation food I would have went someone where else to get Mexican food. The food was horrible and wasn't satisfied not one bit.

The salsa that is $3.99 with nachos is generic jarred salsa, and the cheese for the nachos is the canned stuff. I got a chimichanga, and it was alright.

If you don't like authentic Mexican food then I guess this place is fine. There's so many good authentic Mexican restaurants around so don't bother.
