Tampiqueña with white rice and refried beans,,,real food. Welcome with chips and sauce, followed by something cold on your hand. A short 8 minutes wait and there it is, big steak, juicy and ready to be eaten. Friendly people when you sit at the bar. Recommended

Extremely popular Mexican restaurant always busy. The food choices are familiar to everybody who loves Mexican food. The Fajitas sizzling on the skillet is my favorite you can have it with Mexican sides or Cuban rice an beans

This authentic and very popular restaurant is a hot spot for Mexican and Spanish cusine! Huge menu. We love the Chicken Flautas Rancheros, and the Mexican Pizza. Service is fast and efficient. Usually a 30 min wait to be seated. The bar is small but they make great drinks!!

Thank Susan C
