Great food - everyone in my party enjoyed our dinner. Looking forward to another visit. I would recommend reservations, although we were there on a Friday and they were able to seat us in only a few minutes without reservations.

The real deal for a great meal. The place is average and not contrived. Service is good and margaritas are worth ordering.

The food is very good and prices are quite reasonable. I always enjoy their enchiladas with mole sauce, accompanied by rice and beans, and my husband loves their burritos.
