I had some amazing food and even had better service. The food was served fast and hot. It was nice to have homemade salsa to start off. I had the chicken enchiladas.

The price is great! You get a lot of food for little money. Good place for large or small group. Our group liked the salsa and chips. No complaints from our group of 8. The service was good and the place was clean.
