Ate here between appointments at the food came out fast and was very good. Servers were attentive, place was clean, and the prices were cheap. If this wasn't so far from the house, I would come back more often .

Ordered Steak Fajitas and Chile Relleno Lunch Platters. Service was friendly. Added bonus is salsa bar where you can try about 7 salsa options.

Friend and I went to lunch this week and again we're impressed by the quality of the food, the quantity of the food, and the service. The prices are also quite reasonable and it is in a great location. I highly recommend this Mexican restaurant!

This place was so accommodating to my husband's 40th birthday party. We had a very large party (30+), but we were having a difficult time finding a restaurant to accommodate that many people or reserve a section for us.

We live very close to this restaurant and being new to the area, wanted to give it a try. The service and food are amazing! I would have given it 5 out of 5, but it looks a bit run down. Try it out and you will be surprised at how great this place is!

We have had a large group the past 3 years and the food was great. The service was very quick and the owner is a charm. It is in a great location and the prices are reasonable. Great salsa bar!

Went here with the parents they are big fans of Mexican food. Mom got a steak fajita quesadilla was really flavorful dad got the nachos um can I say HUGE Caroline. He loved them. I got the chicken enchiladas they weren't bad the sauce was great. Could've used more cheese to top them with.

Carne Asada was very tough and overcooked. Burrito was tasty. Salsa bar was strange as you had to go get it yourself and there was a sign 'Don't Waste Salsa'. Say what?
