Came here for an evening meal. The good: cheap, delicious and strong margheritas on Tuesdays. The meh: food was okay. The bad: the waitress was snippy as hell when asking us if we wanted more drinks. Sure we were nursing our current margheritas but it's...More

The food was nice, tasty and a good portion but the chicken sandwich was a bit bland and the chicken bordering on a bit dry. The service was great and the layout nice, I might try it again as most everyone seemed to like their...More

Its hard to find a decent and half decent priced Mexican food joint! This was no different. I do wish I loved it but barely liked it. The $13 margarita was so sour I could not drink it. The Combo plate was extremely boring and...More

Thought the atmosphere was great, server was very friendly and overall service was quick and we were well taken care of. Ordered the guacamole with chips to start. Guacamole was very bland, needed a bit more salt/zest to spruce up the flavour. Same for salsa,...More

I come here regularly for the shrimp Chimichanga because it's so tasty!! The guac is definitely home-made and yummy! It's a small venue and that's how I like it - the owner is here and truly committed to client experience!
