Welcoming and friendly atmosphere, very tasty Tex-Mex. Owners also run a truly authentic mex place down the road. Always leave there full.

As soon as we walked in we were blown away by how rich the decor is. I'd love to go back for dinner. Service was fast and attentive. Everything we got was good from the huevos rancheros to the burrito supreme. I would recommend this for fellow Mexican food lovers.

Part of a large group from work for dinner. Steak Asada was very good. The charro beans had a nice taste to them. The dark salsa is very good and smoky flavor. A good place for lunch or dinner.

We have been frequent patrons and last night received poorly cooked entree's. We asked trend back and replace the manager refused. Did not ask for refund but rather an alternate selection. Manager rudely refused and would only recook original selection. We pay check and left. Will not be coming back due to the rude service.
