This small and authentic restaurant provides a good selection of Tex/Mex. The guy out front, Sergio, is friendly and always on top of everything. My wife and I split and enjoy the Fajitas Texanans - combo of beef, pork and shrimp. Delicious!!!!

We go here somewhat frequently. The family is super nice. The son will know your order after a couple visits. Great restaurant around the corner. No high thrills but great home feeling

Family-owned restaurant. Everything is fresh and home-made. I've never had a bad meal there, and have had many great ones. Wonderful, friendly waiter (Sergio).
