I had a pork tamale, burrito and taco. The taco shell made the taco my favorite dish there. Next time, I will order two tacos! Spacious and clean, I will be back for another lunch.

We go here about once a week. the food is great and a large menu. Daily specials always give you a variety. My favorite is Margarita Mondays. Food is great but I will tell you when they say the sauce hot not mild believe them.
