Place was packed on Friday night but seated quickly. Service decent. Food was plentiful and of decent quality. Decor kitschy but fun. Would not rush back but would not discourage either

I love this place. The food is authentic and delicious and extremely well-priced. The wait staff dresses in Mexican attire and from the moment you enter the door you feel taken into another country.
