All Mexican restaurants are not created equally, there other family operation in dover is much better prepared food. Everytime we go there they get the order wrong. Food is fresh, but something is lacking. I recommend the fajitas as they are prepared fresh.

The waitress was very kind with us. The food is generous. Guacamole was very tasty. The salad is served inside of a tortita bowl. The food in general was normal. They have happy hours in meal and drinks.

One of the worst dining experiences I've ever had. Food quality was bad, waitstaff were slow and inattentive. Do not know how these folks stay in business, must be the tourists that don't know any better.

If you want food and you want it fast, then this is the place for you! The staff is always friendly and the food fast! The food is average Mexican food. Tastes like any other regular good Mexican place. Decor is bright and cheery.
