This is the spot for real Mexican food prepared in authentic style and served just right, hot at the table. Family restaurant where tastiness of food matters and service is great. Get their tropical iced tea to compliment the meal. You'll enjoy. ...

Homemade salsa homemade iced tea fresh Mexican fare, service with a smile....what more can I ask for? One downside I will say is: we were in a large group, around a dozen of us and it took a while to get our food. But to compensate the waitresses campus feeling chips salsa and their most delicious iced tea😀

The food was fantastic. I had the carne asada wet burrito with green sauce. The portion size was huge, and tasty. I also loved the home made tropical iced... More
