We were a group of 6 that ordered a variety of selections, taco salad, seafood enchiladas, quesadillas, tacos,and so forth. All where exceptionally good. Drinks were refilled without asking. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. A must stop if you want authentic Mexican food.

It appears that the owner is host, cashier and server. Had to wait to be seated in an empty restaurant. Service very slow. Had tacos and enchiladas. Nothing special.

Mediocre at best. Salsa was puréed tomatoes no onions or peppers. Enchiladas were ok, and found myself eating just beans because it was the only thing with any spice or seasoning.
