This is good solid Mexican food. You get a fair amount and don't go home hungry. It is just standard fair except the ice cream for desert. I just think it is a little pricey.

Service is friendly and efficient. Food is great. Chips and salsa are very good. What more could you want from a mexican restaurant. You even get a small dessert.

Colleagues and I go here frequently for lunch. They are fast, friendly and the food is very good for the price in the Midwest. The bonus is the chips and salsa and the Ice cream at the end that is inclusive of the meal price....More

This is your typical Mexican place - tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. I like the food there, but am rating average because it doesn't stand out. The service is really fast and attentive. You can be in and out quite quickly if that's what you want....More
