Best Fajitas ever. Large portions, excellent service. Fast and delicious. AND leftovers for the next day. I would highly recommend a stop here.

Good place in West Branch for a South of the Border meal. Especially like their Chimichangas and Fajitas--normally order the streak fajita for 2. Food is goon and plentiful and end up leaving full and with a take-home container. Never had bad service nor a bad meal so enjoy.

I have dined here on several times and the food and the service is very good. The restaurant is very clean and there is lots of menu options. I would definitely recommend dining here for traditional Mexican food

The appetizer sampler platter is the ONLY thing you need to order here. It's HUGE and we always have leftovers to take home. (we meaning 2 adults and 1 teenager)

We came here for lunch while doing marketing for our business in the area. There's only a few people having lunch while we were here. Not impressed with their salsa and chips, it was dry/old chips and the salsa was kinda bland. We ask the server if we could have fresh chips but she said they don't do it fresh... More

When we first walked in, there wasn't a clean tabled. I asked if they had been busy and sure enough, they had just gotten slammed. Good sign...they cleaned up a booth for us pronto and we enjoyed a wonderful lunch with fantastic service. Huge menu selection. I had the Chilies Poblanos which is my favorite Mexican dish.

A touch off the expressway, we used the GPS to find this one. It appeared that this is where the locals eat. The food was good; sauces were especially good, The service was average. The prices are very fair. The restrooms were really clean, a big plus in my book.
