Taco carne asada is the best. Ask for the tomatillo sauce with it. The fish soup is also amazing. The smoke friendly bar in the back is perfect spot to chill with friends and have a margarita or a cold beer, preferably Dos Equis amber.

I guess this is part of a chain, or at least a regional chain. I have eaten at them in Missouri and Oklahoma. The food has been consistently good. The burrito, rice, beans, taco, salsa and cheese dip were all as good, if not better,...More
