We had lunch here after a friend remarked that the food was some of the best Mexican food she had ever eaten. The chimichangas we had were tasty, the meat was tender, and the rice and refried beans delicious. The lunch specials are very reasonably...More

Mexican is usually a hit or miss in life. This place was a hit. Pulling up I wasn't sure what to expect but the food was flavorful, affordable, and plentiful. Just proves you don't have to eat on the pedestrian mall to get a good...More
