The good: nice eating patio when weather is pleasant, fair prices, food and drinks were served in timely fashion. The less than gold: Entrees were okay. Rice and beans pretty standard as were the burritos, tacos, tostada. A little on the smallish side.

We stopped in for a late dinner and even though it was close to closing time they still seated us with smiles. The service was good, and the food was very flavorful. If we lived in the area we would be regulars.

Sometimes you just need to have Mexican food! Rice, beans, tortillas! This place is authentic and great food! You can sit outside and have a cold beer while your food comes out! It's delicious! The service is mostly friendly and quick! Love it!
