This is a very decent Mexican restaurant. The inside is nicely decorated and the food was fair. I was hoping it would have been better. Also the men's room had no paper towels.

The presentation of the food is great, even take out. I prefer getting it delivered to going into the restaurant as service is not that great. The hostesses are very rude and make a poor first impression.

My wife and I love the fried Ice Cream here. We always order it with honey, and sometimes only stop here for dessert. The staff are always polite and quick to serve.

We had great food with our family. The decor is bright and cheerful just like the staff. We enjoyed the enchiladas, tamales, fajitas, and a lot more. We will go back again. Prices are fair.

Beautiful new location. Chips and salsa are good. Shredded chicken is a bit tasteless in the soft tacos. I tried them on two separate occasions and they were a bit blah. Not outstanding, but not horrible either.
