The manager Ahmad interacted with me shortly after I had ordered a chicken and a steak taco. He said the shrimp taco was their best, so I changed the steak to shrimp, and I was NOT disappointed. I returned multiple time over the 3 weeks I was there and ordered the shrimp tacos every time.

outstanding creative menu offering delicious food. The atmosphere is happy and buzzing with positive vibes. I loved their soup especially. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable as well as funny. They played well with our group. I would recommend this to anyone especially if you have a large group.

We stopped here after a long day of travel and we were very hungry. The restaurant was close and we got a table quickly. The staff was very friendly and very efficient. The guacamole appetizer was very, very good. The entrees were completely competent but not very interesting. Overall, we liked the restaurant and will recommend it. But we've been... More

Food wasn't too bad. Tables and seats were dirty. Service was lacking for a Tuesday night. Had the shrimp tacos. A little too sweet for my liking. Chips and salsa good but hard to get refills on anything.

When server came gave drink order first as wanted to look at menu while having drinks. Drinks also took an age to arrive, and... More

We were staying in the Holiday Inn just down the road. We found this place on our 2nd night. The patio area looked very inviting so gave it a try as we do like Mexican food. It was absolutely fabulous and we returned 2 more times. The frozen margaritas where awesome. Service was good especially Caleb who was a great... More

Low pretention, great food, nice, personable staff. Was in town for the weekend and in the area. Great Mexican restaurant. Happy hour every day from 330-730 PM (incl weekends)! 4$ craft, draft beers, 4$ apps, everthing tastes very, very good. Can't beat the service, food and prices!
