here to begin, everything was delicious and service was great. Only thing is we ordered the exact samething, wish we would have ordered different dishes. Would have had more things to try! Would recommend the avacado chili relleno and enchiladas. YUMMY!

While visiting from Colorado our friends took us here for dinner. It was Saturday night and very busy. We all had enchiladas and nobody was disappointed. I would say if you are looking for good Mexican food this is a good choice.
