Well-trained, friendly staff.Very clean. Joyful, family atmosphere, run by family. Food is traditional Mexican fare. Full bar. Both food and drink are second to none.

We like it but...any restaurant that serves pre- made (like what you buy at grocery store) corn taco shells is disappointing. A good taco must feature a taco shell made to order, not pre-made. Carnitas are a joke...they are not authentic at all. The fajitas are good, the flautas are good, though they are called taquitos in Calif., where I... More

Had lunch with friends and it was terrific! While the atmosphere is fairly plain, the food outstanding. Warm chips and fresh salsa were provided when we sat down and they are addictive. Our server, Carmen, was fast, even though she was taking care of several tables at lunch. She was also highly entertaining! The portions were huge - we all... More

Service was good. We were the only ones eating at 5:15 on a Friday evening. Before we left around 6, there were 3 other couples. I ordered chili relenos and my dish was what looked to be half of one pablano, battered and deep fried, served with some cheese and red sauce on top. I ordered no rice so I... More

From the warm tortilla chips and salsa, the entire meal was good. Had a pitcher of excellent margaritas - and had to walk around a couple of city blocks before we could head home. Family run business with great food.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican this place is really good. The menu selection I quite extensive and the portions are quite large. The restaurant itself could use a freshening up but the locals all know that this is a good place to go regardless of how it looks.

Good food, funny yet crabby waitress. My husband and i stopped here for dinner. Quite authentic Mexican food. Waitress also functioned as hostess and boy was she a spitfire! We didn't expect to be so entertained with our dinner.

The food was good. The service was unforgettable! Carmen is one not to argue with, but to absolutely have a good time with. She kept our group of 8 laughing and inline at the same time!!
