The menu is very limited and the small guac salad literally had 1 tablespoon of guacamole for $5 I asked the waitress if this was for real and she kept a straight face. Service was courteous but this is clearly a low-end TexMex place.

I remember going here when I was a young girl with my family. I recently went there and realized it looks exactly like it did then and the food is the same. Love the chile relleno and the refried beans!

Although this restaurant may not be much to look at, it is the absolute best Mexican food around! Their Fajitas (both chicken and steak) and Refried Beans are the best I've ever had! Love this place!!
