Prices were good, service was good, my wife’s food was good, chips were great, but my food was REALLY salty. Guacamole was a sauce and it was really salty, too. I like salt!

Chicken nachos and vegetarian C were good options today. Beers are cold and inexpensive. Good local Mexican option.

We have been dining here for over 15 years. Always enjoy the food and service provided. Even on very busy nights, the wait time is very little. Over time, the owners have done a wonderful job of enterior decorating.
