I had higher hopes based on the reviews for our visit to this restaurant . The salsa was pretty bland and when i asked for it to be kicked up they put some extra spices in that made it almost uneatable. I had chili relleno...More

I am a local and this is one of our go to Mexican restaurants. Great food great drinks and a friendly staff. It's always clean. Try the ceviche or the chili Relleno plate. These two are my favorite!

My husband and I really like this place. We share the chicken fajitas because the portions are so big. Their albondigas soup was delicious! The salsa is tasty too. All around a great place to eat.
