I really enjoyed a quiet evening out on the patio here. I got a ton of great food for a very reasonable price and the service was excellent as well.

We stopped in for lunch and the service was slow. The complimentary chips and salsa were spicy. The chicken tamale was good, but we didn't like their taquitos. Fajitas were very good. Prices good.

A wide selection of Mexican dishes, well prepared and not like a chain, despite their being a chain. Pretty good deals, and watch for the margarita specials!

Whenever we are in the L.A. area we make sure to stop at one of their shops. We love their Chile Relleanos. They are amazing, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Salsa is to die for and love their chips, too.
