While the homemade tortilla chips were hot and fresh and the salsa was chunky and notably fresh, the flavors were merely average. The service was very good and friendly. I went for lunch with a local resident that wanted to showcase the quality of their...More

This is one of those local spots that you can feel comfortable bringing your family, a date, or a large party to. Prices are maybe a bit on the higher side for typical Mexican restaurants, but then besides the usual combo plates (which are around...More
