Hidden gem of tasty Mexican fare. We enjoyed the picadillo (beef and pork) enchiladas and crispy tacos both tasty. If they make good enchiladas then the rest of the menu will be good. We lived in Texas and Arizona even traveled through out Mexico, so we know good Mexican food. Our food was served hot and was to order. Oh,... More

Enjoy great service from staff that are having a good time. WIde variety of Mexican dishes served quickly. Family friendly, good, unassuming ambience. This is solid standard Mexican fare, not upscale. Very good value. We were well fed and uplifted.

For the past 15 years, we would come here a couple of times a month. I don't know if the restaurant has changed hands, but for the past year or so the food has become quite ordinary - like any of the other chains that say their Mexican. Their pico used to get RAVE reviews and friends would ask us... More

I have gone here for almost 20 years and all of their food is delicious. Their fried ice cream is the best and so are their fajitas

A regular Friday night stop for us when I don't feel like cooking. A warm friendly place with a large selection of food. The building is a bit old, but the place is very busy. In fact, years ago a "new" much nicer Mexican restaurant opened across the street. Big shiny, brightly lit Mexican bar and grill. It lasted about... More

The numbers that eat here, unless you counted them all every day, are more representative of the coziness and smallness of the dining area ajoined by a bar in another room. Three parties of two and a party of six looks like a real crowd. and it gets a bit noisy but a happy kind of noise. Authentic is not... More

The bar is a blast and the restaurant is all it should be. The fact it is a very busy place should be an indicator or their service and product. (Best Margs around!)

If you want great Mexican food this is the place to go. It's a family run place and not a chain restaurant. The food is authentic and the service is exceptional. Very friendly place.

I ordered a plate of natchos for the hungry five of us to share as a starter and it was not finished. I can't remember when that has ever happened before. There was hardly any meat on it and the one layer of chips was smothered under a ton of cheese. I had the chicken soup with vegetables. I added... More

We used to eat here a lot but it's been a long time. So I tried it today for lunch and it was as good as I remembered. Will start to visit here more often.
