A surprisingly delightful experience at a storefront mall in the middle of nowhere. The carved and woven wood furniture was very inviting and comfortable. Servers were friendly. Food was delicious and inexpensive. We shared chicken fajitas for 2 and were unable to finish the generous...More

My family had a delicious meal here. Would have liked to have been served a little faster, but there were several large parties there and they were BUSY! Overall they have a varied menu of typical Mexican fare and a kids meal menu as well.

This by far is our favorite place to eat. Food is so good! Customer service is wonderful. My kids love to eat here and they can be picky. My girls always want their birthday dinner from here ages 8 and 10.

My husband and I tried this place while traveling. Everything was good and the prices were reasonable. We really enjoyed the pork dishes but my burrito was also delicious.

On vacation and ate based on reviews! Had fish tacos which tasted frozen/thawed/fried/flavorless. I love fish but it was strong and fishy! The 2 tacos had about a tsp of sour cream shredded lettuce-a handful, nasty fish sticks and nothing else-just awful! Served with rice...More
