Good mexican food that's always fresh tasting. Good size portions. Dinner comes with salad, soup or tostada, a bonus compared to most mexican menus.

As a Mexican, I'd rather eat at Taco Bell than return to this restaurant! The hostess on the bloothtooth as she greeted us. We had to ask her for utensils, coffee refills and food was expensive. What top it, as we are eating, she starts sweeping the rug around us and then she mops the tile around us too! Gross!!

So I've been coming here since 1985, it's still family owned and operated by the same family since I began going. Let's start with the red salsa and chips. The salsa is mild and the chips are seasoned and very crisp. If you want to spice it up, They have the best hot salsa I have ever tasted. Simply add... More

We used to go to this restaurant about 20 years ago. At that time the food and service could not be beat! Last week we decided to go back to honor someone who used to go with us there as it was their favorite restaurant. Boy, what a mistake that was! Our server (who later upon questioning identified herself as... More

We ate lunch here yesterday after skipping over it for the past few years. Nothing had changed. Decent food but service is lacking. One basket of chips for 4 people does not last and the waitress passed by numerous times without refilling chips or drinks. I thought it might be due to Rodeo weekend but the place was not half...

NO margaritas? Wow. That was my first impression. Ok, so I had thought well maybe everything will be good with the highly touted food from a hotel front staffer. I suppose my tastes are quite different than this gentleman's. The waitress was very nice and polite. Accommodated me in most ways. However, this average nothing to look at atmosphere place... More

We have been frequenting this little strip mall Mexican restaurant since it first opened in 1981. The food is flavorful and plentiful. Depending on the quality of fresh produce available (like fresh lettuce or tomatoes) you can count on the Tostada Compuesta or Burrito Supremo to be filling, and so good. Their ala carte menu is good, but for a... More
