For many years our Favorite Mexican restaurant. Now not so much. Last week we were there and the ribs were dry. Rice and beans were only ok. Bacon-wrapped shrimp not succulent. Service forgetful. Sorry to see.

Came here on a Wednesday evening - all the food was good - service was good too. Portions are pretty big. Steak fajitas was a big hit.
