First time here, will not be the last! Felt like was in Mexico, TV's on Spanish stations, most of the menu in Spanish, customers there at the time all speaking Spanish! Food was fresh, delicious! Chips and salsa very good, Loved the enchiladas, beans and rice. Highly recommend! Family run, friendly.

Best Mexican I've eaten in a long time. Family-run, mama cooks in the kitchen. Tacos are great. Fajitas are huge with lots of meat.

Had to ask for more chips and soft drinks/water were not bottomless but nonetheless some of the best Mexican food I have eaten!
