Specials can be really good. Authentic flavors of Mexico. Service good with friendly waiters. Eaten there several times and not disappointed.

Have eaten there several times now and have yet to have a bad meal. Staff is very attentive and always on hand to fill your glass. I do recommend the bean dip from the bar as it is more spicy than in the dining room,...More
