There are several Mexican places in area and they are all good. This one is Mexican only. Parking can be a little difficult as its on Main street and you may have to park on a side street. Good food fair prices.

I eat here often! && love it!! They have amazing margaritas and the tacos are great! But their seafood and in house made salsa is to die for!! I strongly suggest this restaurant to anyone looking to enjoy some Mexican food.
