Nice family restaurant. Service was fast and friendly. They have a nice lunch menu. Grilled chicken tacos were wonderful, big chunks of well seasoned meat. Flautas were also good. We forgot to ask for the charro beans, so we got the refried beans by default. They were good, but we heard the charros are even better. Excellent chips, thin and... More

We all had different plates but common that all was great. Good flavor. The Charo beans are tasty and spicy. This is a small restaurant but family touch.

Went to the sw 6th location but can't find that on trip advisor. But this has the same menu so obviously a chain. My husband and I met my brother here for dinner. Beer was ice cold and cheap $3-4 /each depending on selection. Salsa and chips good. Queso average. They have daily specials and we were there on a... More

Best Mexican food in town, the fish tacos are to die for. Beans are amazing. It's a small little place but always full because the food is so good. A must try restaurant.

Had never been here before, sort of out of my beaten path. But, when I did stop in WOW, I immediately called some friends to join me. It was that good, had to share. It is now part of my weekly routine. Love the food and the wait staff is awesome.

Looked up reviews and stopped to have some authentic Mexican food. Tried the enchiladas al carbon. Green sauce is spicy and good. Enchiladas were ok. I did like the salsa though. Not too spicy. Chips were fresh hot and crispy.overall good mexican food.

This is a casual and authentic Mexican restaurant. Their chips and salsa are tasty and both salsas are spicy! Their rice and beans are very good! My husband thoroughly enjoyed his enchiladas and I thought the corn tortillas were excellent. My dish had steak and shrimp and was quite unlike anything I've had (served in a tortilla bowl with chopped... More

At first the restaurant looked a little run down but nothing too out of the ordinary for a local place. The food was great and the price was right. The chicken chimichanga with queso sauce was perfect. I laughed at the sized of the drinking cups and didn't need a refill, but a longer straw would have helped.. :) I... More

We left the route to eat lunch. The food was good but not outstanding. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We will not make the effort to go back as it was pretty typical Mexican food.
