We turned up at about 8:30pm, and the kitchen was closing, but they kindly took our order, and brought out a great dinner for the 4 of us. We were made very welcome, and would be pleased to eat there again.

Very authentic menu. The place is extremely popular and has 2 or 3 other restaurants. We went to the Willow Glen location. Love their salsa. We ordered tacos and all variety were very good.
