This restaurant is near our home so we go there often and are never disappointed. Nicely furnished and there is a patio area. You order at the counter and get your own drinks but they bring your order to your table. The staff have always been pleasant and helpful. Good place to eat.

I have never been treated so rudely. I was greeted with an eye roll. Huffed at when I started to order, she then looked at me like I was crazy, and then cut me off after every part of my order trying to get me to just pay and shut up. She obviously didn't even pay attention, because the WHOLE... More

I've been here about half a dozen times recently. It was good every time. Today I had a Chili Verde Burrito. Nice and tangy, the pork was slightly on the salty side but very tasty. I have had Chicken Tacos, Carne Asada and more. Service is good even when busy. Atmosphere is sports bar - ish with an outside patio.... More

Tried the fajitas and the beef was so dry. Staff was not particularly friendly either. Just ok, not great.

Great food at a very reasonable price. Not a fancy place. ... just nice. Not a sit down and order place. They do deliver to your table and the silverware is plastic. Good service.

Originally I made reservations for Bistro West but after my mother had her massage she wanted to just relax. This place was located inside the complex of where we stayed. The food was great and they gave large portions for the money.

I've been here three times now and ordered different things each time. I've been unimpressed with each meal. They are good meals, just not great. Not very flavorful. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here, but they are conveniently located, so I probably will go back.

Good fresh Mexican food in an informal atmosphere. Nicer tgan tge typical taco shop and a nice variety of dishes. No specific Mexican Regional faire,just a nice place for a quick meal that has a good selection and tastes good.
