I put in another "to go" order for the Fajitas. The price did go up, and they do charge a 50 cent "to go" charge, but I really do not mind at all. Everyone in the restaurant are awesome. They are so friendly and helpful....More

A full parking lot indicated we should eat here. A delay with our order brought the owner to our table and he and our waitress did everything possible to ease our wait....even complimentary tequila shots! Very good food and excellent service equals 5 stars!

So great I went twice during my trip. The salsa is amazing and has a great kick to it. The chips were so delicate and came out hot. I suggest the cheese dip. The service could have been friendlier, but overall great experiences.

Walked into a typical Mexican restaurant. I was in for a surprise. The food was extremely good, the prices great and the service was better than average. Definitely worth a trip back!
