This is my favorite Mexican Restaurant. The food is freshly made as are their tortilla chips and Salsa. I get great service and the food is excellent. I'm a regular customer for dinner.

I always enjoy going to this restaurant and think I should come here more often. It has a relaxed atmosphere and a nice selection of Mexican specialties. I have not had anything I did not enjoy. I would recommend this if you are looking for something to try in the area.

Was there to celebrate a birthday. The food was awesome again. It was Saturday Night and there was a line up. Waited less time than was told and it was well worth it. The sampler that we had was so delicious. We will be back with more people.

Overall a very good local Mexican restaurant. Much better than other Mexican restaurants that came before it. Food is as authentic as you can get with local ingredients. Food is a little pricey for portion sizes but once in awhile it's okay. I will come here once in a while when craving good Mexican food but sometimes the portion sizes... More

I had dinner with a friend here the other night. It's a cute quaint place. The margaritas were tasty. They brought us some chips and salsa to start, chips were a bit stale but the salsa was decent. We shared a chimichanga and a enchilada. The portions were decent but the food wasn't hot. Not sure if the food had... More
