I have eaten here a number times. The food is very consistent and the prices are reasonable. My favorites include any of the combination plates. the enchiladas, and chicken nachos.

A nice and varied menu, with reasonable prices. Everyone seemed happy with their meals. I enjoyed my quesadilla. It was a large portion that I got two meals out of. Good guacamole too. Good service rounded out an enjoyable experience here.

Ate lunch there and I would have to say it is average at best. The chimi was not that great. Quesadillas were about the same. The chips, salsa and guacamole were pretty good. Service was excellent. Prices were in the average category.
